Thrifty Car & Truck Rental Swim Course
2013 THRIFTY SWIM COURSE: 1.9kms
There will be wave starts in the swim to reduce congestion amongst swimmers and to minimise congestion on the bike course. All participants will be asked to know their start wave and time, and make their way to the swim start compound on the beach.
It is a one-lap swim course alongside the historic Busselton Jetty. The swim start will be as previous years (in front of the Goose Café). Swimmers will swim 850m in a northerly direction and then take a right hand turn around the course marker. From here competitors will swim East for 200m. Competitors will make a right hand turn and swim back towards the shore for 850m to the swim exit

THRIFTY SWIM START
Those wanting to warm up for the swim are requested to do so on the eastern (transition side) of the small jetty. Each wave will be invited into the start area before their wave start. Competitors should only enter the start area via the back of the fenced area and ensure they cross the timing mats – this is to ensure all swimmers are accounted for and so we ensure everyone has started in the correct wave.
