Will I be able to refuel during the swim

Because everyone is required to exit the swim after every lap there is an opportunity to have a drink or something to eat. A table will be set up at the turn around point on the beach where you will be able to place your own drink bottle/snacks and there will also be a sports drink and lollies provided by Swimfit.


Will I be allowed to wear a wetsuit?

You are allowed to wear a wetsuit, but this will make you non-competitive.
