SWIM AND TRANSITION ZONE
The swim course is hosted on one of the most prestigious white, sandy beaches in Curacao – Santa Barbara Beach! It’s a fast course where athletes swim in the protected, calm, ocean waters of Spanish Water Bay.
Start, finish and transition area are at the parking place of Santa Barbara Golf & Beach Resort in the Santa Barbara Plantation near Boca 19 Restaurant and the Epsilon Dive Center.
There will be a water start on the outside of the dock, in front of Boca 19 restaurant, heading in a northerly direction towards the bay and the Seru Boca Estate peninsula. The swim is a two-lap course, following the noted swim buoys. Keep the swim buoys on your right hand at all times. After the second lap, swim under the bridge towards the beach and the final buoy, as noted by volunteers who will be standing in waist deep water directing you around the buoy. This final buoy should be to your left hand. Exit the water, where you will find volunteers directing you up the ramp and into the transition zone.
