This event is open to all swimmers, but requires an invitation.This is a long-distance and non-drafting event and the demands of swimming ability and conditioning are considerable. The ocean is very unforgiving to those who get into trouble. The Organizing Committee must have a good understanding of the swimmer’s ability or if the swimmer is unknown to the Organizing Committee they must be able to show that they have the ability to swim 7 km in a reasonable amount of time before an Invitation will be
extended. The procedure is to submit a demonstration time to the Organization Committee. If a appropriate standard is
met, your application will be accepted . If for any reason your application is not accepted, the
Committee will refund your entry fee.
