THINGS TO REMEMBER:

Swimmers: suits, caps (race cap required), goggles, towels and warm clothes for after. Helpful to have slip on sandals or Crocs for start/finish to walk into the water. For those swimming the 10/6/3K swims be sure to have plenty of hydration beverages and foods (goo, gels, bars).

Kayakers: warm clothing and of course dress for the possibility of rain or shine. Raingear, hats and sunglasses highly recommended regardless of current weather. Hydration and fuel supplies for both kayaker and swimmer. If you can, please bring a cell phone and a waterproof case or a VHF radio.
