shore (where the Fish, Wildlife and Parks building is located) heading east. Near the east shore
line another left turn will be made and participants will swim parallel to the north shore heading
towards the boat ramp and then turning left at the buoy. Those in the 3K will complete three
laps of the course before finishing. Swimmers in the 1K will swim towards the boat ramp, going
west. One lap only. The finish line is up the boat ramp through the finishing chute.
Participants in the 400m swim will start in the water near the boat ramp. They will swim 200m,
going east, towards the turn around buoy, go around the buoy and finish up the boat ramp
through the finishing chute.
