British Landing

- AID STATION #1

- The ONLY easily accessible RESTROOMS

- Relay Exchange Point

- 3.75 Miles on swim route

- 2.75 Miles on path from start line

This location will be soon before swimmers make the turn around the north end of the island.  Which, depending on the weather/current, could mean things get a lot easier... or... a lot harder.

A note on relay exchanges

Relay Exchange Chart

- How to use:  Swimmer A pick a row that denotes where you will start.  Use the column to decide where you will meet swimmer B.  The intersection is the distance you will swim.

- Highlighted part indicates a 4 person team.

How to do your relay exchange.

1)  Exchange your race chip as if it is a relay baton.  The swimmer who is in the water should always have the chip.

2) A staff member/volunteer will record your relay exchange to keep our event staff aware of your last exchange location.
