You MAY use a personal float for safety, if you are concerned. 

The swim will be an open water swim start. Adults will walk out from the sandy shore, to the end of the large pier, and will start near a large green buoy. Adults will then swim towards the large ORANGE BUOYS. ORANGE BUOYS ARE TURN BUOYS. When you reach an orange buoy, keep that buoy to your right and make the turn to the next buoy. YELLOW buoys will be placed in between, so that you can sight to the next turn buoy. 

The exit for the event will be the beach area at Wellington Beach, adjacent to the transition area.

The bike course will be marked with ORANGE arrows on the ground and will have arrow signs at every turn. A course map is available, with turn by turn directions, on the main site ( under Course Maps.
