The swim starts at Sussex Avenue beach, a mile south of the pavilion. Walk to start along (smooth) boardwalk ready to go; there is no bag wagon at the start. Running start from beach into surf. For 2020's social distancing, there will be three waves: males, females, and a 3rd/buddy wave of swimmers who prefer to hang back. Each wave's swimmers will self organize along a marked grid.
The course runs northward parallel to shore. Swim out to yellow buoy and turn left; proceed northward about one mile to second yellow buoy; turn left and head into beach. The course passes five rock jetties. Sighting flags are positioned midway between these jetties.
Running finish from surf onto beach and into timing chute in front of pavilion. The finish is marked with a bright arch, easily seen from final buoy.
