                     his or her own physical condition and enters this event at their own personal risk. Any swimmer who is still in the water
                     after 90 minutes will be asked to default and will be transported to shore. A swimmer deemed incapable of completing
                     the course may be brought to shore at any time at the absolute discretion of the Water Safety Manager.

REGISTRATION &       The Cronulla Beach Fun Swim and The Shark Island Swim Challenge will be timed by an electronic chip system involving
TIMING BANDS         the use of an electronic chip encased in a neoprene ankle band.
                     Your responsibilities as a competitor include:
                     1. When you register for your swim on the Sunday morning you will be issued with your timing band and a swim cap.
                        There will be a different timing band and swim cap for each of the swim events.
                     2. You must wear the timing band on your left ankle and swim cap on your head at all times while swimming. You must
                        leave them on until you finish the entire swim course. The timing band is a means of recording your finish time across
                        the special timing mats located at the end of the swim, on the beach.
                     3. At the completion of the swim you will be required to remove the timing band and hand it to officials prior to leaving
                        the secured Finish Area.
                     4. As you have acknowledged on your entry contract, the timing chip and band is on loan and you are committed to
                        returning the timing band intact with the chip to the Cronulla SLSC or pay a $55.00 fee.
                     5. It is imperative that you return the timing band to a Finish Area official should you withdraw from the race at any time.
                        It is essential for us to know where you are on the course at all times, for your safety and our ability to post accurate
                        official results after the events.
                     6. Should you lose your timing band during any leg of the swim, you should alert an Official at the finish of the event.
