Whether you are getting ready for your first Sprint Tri 750m or just want to enjoy the Sea, your swim distance is up to you and only what you’re comfortable doing. Keep safety in mind at all times. You swim at your own risk.
Our yellow safety buoys are there as guidance, not as targets. Don’t feel you have to push yourself to reach them. For strong swimmers doing a lap in suitable conditions, here’s how to swim the buoys.
Here are some commonly followed routes in Myrtleville, apart from (and before) lapping the buoys. OK, they were mapped before we had the buoys, but they still count 🙂
The next two pictures from Google Earth were taken on a day that we wouldn’t have been swimming to the Dutchman! They’re still ok for distance purposes.
Again, stay safe, swim safe. The above routes are just some information for distances. Swim 20m, 50m or 100m from the beach and back again, if you prefer. Never take a risk in the sea. Always know the tides and the weather forecast.
