45 boats, 8 paddlers, and 55 teams will take part in what is expected to offer good headwinds and ocean swells on part of the 15km course.
It is a real rough water swim where ocean knowledge is critical.
“The race could be interesting. We have a 500m wall where we swim along which allows for downwind body surfing for those who are good at it. Maybe the only marathon swim with a body surfing segment,” explained Woodring.
For both risk-taking aquatic athletes and ocean swimmers the Clean Half in Hong Kong is a really cool rough water swim where the conditions can test all the different skill sets of open water swimmers.
