Course Description: All swim starts will use a Triple Time Trial start system at North Beach Park which allows athletes to self-seed themselves within each wave start and start 3 at a time every 3-5 seconds. This allows for a much less congested swim and keeps athletes spread out allowing for easy passing of slower swimmers in the previous waves. All courses are point-to-point courses in the pristine waters of Lake Michigan. Water temperatures range from a low of mid-60’s to a high of low-70’s depending on weather conditions. Wetsuits will be allowed if water temperatures are 78 degrees or lower for amateurs and 72 degrees or lower for professionals.
