Please note, our swim is about participation and enjoying the journey, not racing. We DO NOT publish results. We all like to know times for our own satisfaction so we will time each wave and tell you your time as you exit the water. These wont be sent out after the swim and published so if you want an exact time for your own records, please time yourself on your own watch.
