1500m Open Water Sea Swim
A Tide assisted swim along the coast in a South Westerly direction with the majority of the course parallel with the beach; Starting 1.4km North East of the Transition Area and Finishing opposite Clacton Sailing Club, Holland Haven. Full safety cover is provided.
2 Laps of a 20km route around the Tendring District.
NB. Due to unsuitable road surfaces there are ‘Non-Timed’ sections between Transition One (T1) and the Bike Start Line PLUS the Bike Finish Line and Transition Two (T2). The time on these two sections is deducted from the competitors overall time. (A maximum of 3 minutes 30 seconds is allowed on each section - Out and In. This works out at an average of 10km per hour for each ‘Non-Timed’ Section)
See the ‘Non-Timed’ Schematic for further clarification.
