In most open water swimming events around the world, directional turns are indicated by turn buoys (or cans). But sometimes, some swims are occasionally different.

The Bermuda Round the Sound Swim is a charity swim that offers 0.8 km, 2 km, 4 km, 7.25 km and 10 km swims where swimmers traverse around the course in Hamilton Sound and where more than $300,000 has been raised cumulatively.
