NOTICE: This year the public vote count will not be shown throughout the contest so as to not sway voter sentiment and to increase the enjoyment, awe and discovery of these wonderful open water swimming women, men, events and products.
Once the contest ends, our tech team will tally votes against our verified user base emails and make the calculation X 10 for verified users – also after bots, duplicates and fake emails have been removed. The vote count will be shown at the end of the contest.
The votes are verified by unique email address and also IP address. Please review our Terms & Conditions before voting.
