The second race in the Vileda Birkirkara St. Joseph Open Water Swimming Championships 2013 will be held tomorrow Wednesday, 19 June starting at 6.30 p.m. at Salina. The race will be held on two 1000-metre laps.

Swimmers can register on the day of the race, but not later than half an hour before the start.  All swimmers must use a cap during these races, which should not be of a dark colour or blue.  Swimmers may use wetsuits of any kind, however, those using such wetsuits (except those wetsuits of a thickness equal to or less than 0.5 mm), although they will have their finish time recorded, they will not be eligible to be included in the championships classifications.

Swimmers who have already participated in the first race of these championships do not need to fill in any forms, but will be requested to give their names and race numbers at the registration table before the start of the race.  Swimmers under the age of 14 years will pay half the regular entry fee.

As in the previous race, the start will be staggered in two waves.  For this reason, all swimmers will be asked to leave the water five minutes before the start of the race, and are to re-enter only when their names or race numbers are called.  The first 40 swimmers with the best finishing times in the first race of these championships will make up the first wave to start.  The rest of the swimmers will make up the second wave and will start three minutes later.  Swimmers 14 years of age or under, who qualify to start in the first wave, may opt to start in the second wave.  Finishing times in the final classification will be adjusted accordingly.

The Entry Form and Disclaimer may be downloaded from this website.  The Entry Fee can also be paid online.
