Swimmers & Crew further information
The course is a straight line course from Waterhead/Ambleside to Fell Foot Park and back.
The finish is to cross the line in line with Jetty marked by a buoy in the water.
The turn is at Fellfoot going through a line of buoys next to the jetty, swimming between the buoys and jetty and giving your number. Your crew are to stay outside this area, you will be guided towards a small boat which is lit up, please go around behind the boat anti clockwise.
At the turnaround point you may be asked questions to ensure we are happy that you are fit to return back to Waterhead Ambleside.
There are kayaks in the water at this point to guide you past the small lit up boat.
Your crew at this point may want to take a toilet stop, please let the turn safety staff know.
There is also a first aid point here.
