Race Day information:

Pre Race check in - 10am at Devil’s Hole Slip (please be on time!!!)

Start - 11am at Devil’s Hole Slip

Post Race BBQ - will have food and drinks all of which are free - if you wish to make donations for the food/drinks that’s very kind and we will pass along BBQ funds to the Bermuda Zoological Society - last year we were able to donate in excess of $1,000 - so get your appetites ready to top that amount this year!

***************************************************************************************************************************************************************************

Some people are training for longer swims and wish to get in more distance than 1 mile - to enable them to accomplish that (and not miss out on the BBQ) we can coordinate a lift out to Trunk Island leaving Devil’s Hole Slip at 10am. We will drop those swimmers out there, they can swim back to the start and then do the race. If you want to join this group send Mike Cash an email in advance (mike@bows.bm) so we can plan for numbers.

For family/friends who want to watch the swim and join the BBQ we will arrange transport by Callista (Aquarium pontoon boat) which will collect you from Harrington Sound School Dock. Exact time will be shared closer to the day, but assume that you will need to drop swimmers at Devil’s Hole, then go to Harrington Sound School parking lot to park and await Callista.
