WHAT'S A PIRATE TO DO?
WHAT EACH PIRATE NEEDS TO DO: 1. ESTIMATE THE TIME TO COMPLETE THE SWIM PER YOUR AGE GROUP (10 & UNDER YEARS OF AGE, 100 YRDS; 11-15 YEARS OF AGE, 200 YRDS). THE 11-15 YEAR OLDS GO INTO THE WATER FIRST, ONE EVERY 15 SECONDS. AFTER A BREAK OF APPROX. 10 MINUTES, THEN THE 10 AND UNDER AGE GO INTO THE WATER, ONE EVERY 15 SECONDS. WE PLACE THEM IN THE WATER ACCORDING TO HOW FAST THEY CAN SWIM THE DISTANCE, FASTEST TO SLOWEST. IF YOU DON’T KNOW HOW LONG IT WILL TAKE YOUR PIRATE TO SWIM, THAT IS OK. UNKNOWN SWIM TIMES GO TO THE BACK OF THE LINE - THIS IS NOT A PENALTY. IT MERELY PUTS THE FASTER SWIMMERS FIRST, AND MAKES THE SWIM MORE ENJOYBABLE AND LESS STRESSFUL FOR EVERYONE. :)........... 2. PICKUP YOUR RACE PACKET FROM 12-6PM AT SOLER’S TRI SPORTS, SATURDAY, SEPT 29. BE PREPARED TO PAY FOR THE USA TRIATHLON MEMBERSHIP $5. FOR BENEFITS OF USAT MEMBERSHIP GO TO WWW.USATRIATHLON.ORG............. 3. READ THE TIMELINE/INSTRUCTIONS/MAPS.......... 4. IF NEEDED, ATTEND THE FIRST TIME PRIATES TRIATHLON CLINIC SATURDAY, SEPT. 29, 4PM AT SOLER’S TRI SPORTS; YOU DO NOT NEED TO BRING YOUR BIKE, ETC. JUST A PIRATE SMILE AND A PARENT/GUARDIAN................. 5. PIRATES NEED SWIM GOGGLES, RUN SHOES, A BIKE AND HELMET TO PARICIPATE. A TOWEL IS HELPFUL BUT NOT NECESSARY. WE PROVIDE WATER AT TWO AID STATIONS AND REFRESHMENTS AFTER. WE DO NOT HAVE BOTTLES OF WATER FOR THE BIKE PORTION................. 6. IF YOU ARE A RELAY TEAM, EACH MEMBER WAITS IN THE TRANSITION AREA WHERE THEIR TEAM BIKE IS RACKED. YOU MUST YELL “ARRGH! MATEY!” AND SLAP EACH OTHER’S HANDS AS THE “EXCHANGE.”
