Open Water Swimming Association and after many talks and a dozen or so emails, they have agreed to sanction our event.
Basically that means that we will conform to their standards on how a swim like this should go. They give us help with organization, insurance and marketing and the race is will be even better than than we thought it would be - which is really amazing. So before the race even starts, it just got better.
The time to sign up for this event is NOW!
