Important information regarding wetsuits
We have a new wetsuit policy for 2019. Please note the temperature ranges before entering the event.

There will be no exceptions to the wetsuit policy if water temperature is not reached.
If the water temperature does not reach 19c, this will be a wetsuit compulsory event. Please consider this when entering. There will be no transfers or refunds made because of the wetsuit policy.

The upper limit is discretional. We advise that you don’t wear a wetsuit above these temperatures but acknowledge not everyone is here to swim as fast as possible and might require the extra warmth.

18.9c and under = wetsuit compulsory
19c and above = wetsuit optional in all distances
23c = Non-wetsuit for 2km
24c = Non-wetsuit for 4km & 8km
Mini swimmers will be offered guidance based on their ability and swim speed.

The policy has been agreed with the lake owners using industry best practice and our collective knowledge of the venue. Temperatures will be adhered to; no exceptions will be made. Unfortunately, we cannot make additional allowances for experience or preference. We appreciate your continued understanding.
