21 ° C. on Friday, June 21, 2019

You can find the daily water temperature and the weather at any time in the live image at this link.

At the moment we can not say if it will a wetsuit or a non-wetsuit swim.

Will I be allowed to wear a wetsuit?

Whether a wetsuit will be allowed during the swim or not, will be decided by the race marhalls after measuring the water temperature on competition weekend. You will be told the result at the Bernbacher pasta party on Saturday evening, or at the latest on Sunday morning on our information boards and by our speakers.

For those who do not know the DTU sports regulations, we’ll provide you an overview of the use of wetsuits from page 17 of the 2019 Sports Regulations.
