Pre Race Procedures

It is the responsibilty of the competitors to arrive promptly at the registration times set out below to allow sufficient time for registrations and numbering. Starts will not be delayed for swimmers who are late.


Swimmers should not appy sunscreen to their arms or back prior to competitor numbers being applied as the ink can only be applied to clean and dry skin.

 

  1. Registrations Table: Located on the lawn in front of the start line and swimmers must present for registration wearing the swimsuits in which they will be competing so that they can be checked for swim suit compliance contained in this document. Competitors will then be issued with their competitor-numbered caps and will also be checked to ensure that no jewellry (including ear and facial piercings) is worn and that fingernails and toenails are cut short.  Free programs will be available from here.
  2. Number Stamping Table: Located next to the Registration Table, competitors must immediately report to this table after being issued with their cap to have their competitor numbers stamped on each shoulder blade, on each upper arm. Competitors must not apply sunscreen lotion to their arms, hands or back prior to competitor numbering being applied as the ink can only be applied to clean, dry skin. Care should be taken when applying sunscreen after stamping to ensure that the competitor numbers remain legible.
