New Start Time
For several important reasons (Air and Water show boat traffic, forecasts for wind and boat schedules), we will be leaving earlier than the previous plan.
Arrive at the Chicago Yacht club at 6:30 PM, Friday August 16th
Final briefing: 6.45 PM
Loading: 7.10 PM
Depart CYC: 7.25 PM
Swim Start: 8.00 PM
The swim rosters and boat lists have been altered and these will be re-published here on Wednesday.
Obviously the biggest change is more night swimming. We’ll be adjusting the leg scheduling to ensure that we have only 1 night-time leg. This will also be published with the boat and swimmer lists.
The good news is that we have a good forecast and by leaving early we should have light winds for most of the swim.
We also have a larger center console Zodiak which will speed up the transitions.
