Transfers

Swimmers must be ready at 7 am in the parking lot of the Nàutic de El Port de la Selva. A bus will take you directly to the starting point in Cadaqués.

IMPORTANT:

1. Swimmers who come by their own means at the start must also pass the chip control.

2. The participant who does not pass the chip control will not appear in the rankings.

3. Changes in the start will not be accepted.

Start and regulation

A single start will be made at 8 am from the Platja Gran de Cadaqués.

Registration in pairs will be mandatory.

The teams, formed by couples, will be guarded at all times by a kayak. The pace of swimming is free throughout the course. Setting passage limits every 5 km for a maximum of 24’/ km (including stops).

The kayak must go with a mobile phone to have direct contact with the ground team for any setback that may arise.

The kayak will not be separated more than 5 meters from the swimmers.

The kayak will be equipped with a geolocator to have its position at all times in case of emergency.

There will be four categories: Mixed couples, male couples, female couples and couples with no wetsuit. The groups must consist of 2 participants.

There is no possibility to do the BIG SWIM by relays. If a swimmer gets on the boat, he will be automatically disqualified. But your partner can continue.

The members of each team must swim in a grouped manner and cannot be separated more than 5 meters between the swimmer who heads the group and the one who closes it.

The organization will NOT mark the route. It’s going to be the kayak that guides the swimmer.

For more information and detail, check the BIG SWIM REGULATION.
