For the 1 Mile swim....
All buoys remain on your RIGHT hand side. Clockwise swim
Leg 1 of the swim -750 yards
Leg 2 of the swim - 440 yards
Leg 3 of the swim - 580 yards
4.4 Mile Swim (approximate locations of Mile locations)
From the Beach to the Bridge - @430 yards
Right after the curve in the bridge - 1 Mile Mark
After the first set of overhead rails on Eastbound Bridge - Mile 2
Right around the Start of the second set of overhead rails on Eastbound Bridge
Right after you cross from under the Bridge (Almost Done!!!) - Mile 4
The last stretch is ROUGHLY 700 yards to the finish, and you will find it gets shallow as you get near closer to the end.
