This is a hard core swim. Distance is great enough that you can not see from point to point.

Kayak escort is mandatory for this event. You must have a kayak and paddler with you. Kayaks are provided for those who can not provide their own. Up to 8 boats.

Course is marked by a series of bouys as far as they go because lake depth is 130 feet at deepest.

Safety is monitored by Lake Patrol and Lake Fire Rescue and DNR management.

1 PWC boat, Two Patrol Craft, One Fire Rescue Boat: all follow the spread of swimmers and paddlers.

Serious consideration for swimmers on this course is that they are fit. Endure a long swim with lots of potential chop, as well as wind and needing to account for serious wind drift on the course.

If there is Rain Delay on Saturday this event will go on next AM Sunday.
