Race safety and procedures

This season there will be an emphasis on complying as closely with FINA guidelines as possible. This being the case you can expect; an increased focus on safety and a stricter enforcement of general and fair play rules.

This season we will also be enforcing a strict 30min cut-off for race registrations. So please ensure that you get to the racedesk early.

The participation league

Instead of prize money this season, there will be a participation league where swimmers will be able to earn points for their clubs, with R 10 000 up for grabs for the winning clubs.

Points will be awarded for participation and also for finishing times achieved. Points will be awarded for all events, with exception of the kiddies bank-to-bank swims.

The club with the most accumulated points at the end of the season will be the winning club.

Triathletes and wetsuit swimmers

To further encourage and to provide extended open water swimming opportunities to the region's triathlon community, Blu Smooth will this season sponsor the wetsuit category at the Metsi events.

Prizes will be on offer at each event for the 1km and 3km swims. A lucky draw prize of a brand new Blu Smooth MK1 wetsuit will be on offer at the 3rd and final Metsi swim event.
