Each swimmer is obliged to take a kayaker who will join the swim at Xerta.

If the swimmer does not have a kayaker, the organization facilitates the hiring of one at the moment of formalizing the registration.

The kayaker will perform the tasks of provisioning, piloting and assistance of the swimmer under the established rules.

The swimmer has the responsibility of delivering the bag to the kayaker with the necessary equipment, supplies and auxiliary material.

If the kayaker detects the swimmer any problem such as extreme fatigue, dehydration, hypothermia, insolation, dizziness or vomiting, the swimmer's emergency protocol should be initiated.

In case of emergency, follow the protocol defined by the organization.

Coordination between swimmer and kayaker

The swimmer must inform the kayaker which side wants to be accompanied. During the swim we recommend swimming approximately 3 meters from the side of the kayak.

The swimmer can not swim behind the kayak. This is considered drafting and it means disqualification.

The swimmer can approach at the time of the refreshment.

The swimmer must inform the kayaker of when, how and what to give in each provisioning

The kayaker and the swimmer must agree which signals they have to use to facilitate communication between them.

Service and evacuation protocol. Swimmer.

The swimmer will notify the nearest kayaker of his indisposition by raising his arms.

The kayaker will attend the swimmer in the first instance.

In case of not being able to resolve the incident, you will notify the safety management, kayak coordinator or boat coordinator via telephone.

The participant will be towed by a boat that will transfer the participant to the nearest evacuation point.

Depending on the severity of the incident, the participant will be transferred to the nearest ambulance location.

At this point the participant will be attended and it will be determined if they can attend at this point or if they need a transfer to the hospital.

At the moment the swimmer is towed or transferred, the abandonment must be notified to the competition control or competition management.

ID

Each swimmer will receive an accreditation to move around the competition spaces and related to the event.

The swimmer must submit the accreditation to the transfer at the start or before entering the call room to the referee to confirm the participation. The accreditation will be returned to the swimmer at the time of reaching the finish area.

Each swimmer must wear the identification cap of the event delivered by the organization. Swimming with a different cap is a reason for disqualification.

Each swimmer must compulsorily put a set of 6 numbered tattoos on the skin before putting on any cream or other substance. The tattoos will be placed 2 in the hands, 2 in the shoulders and 2 in the shoulder blades.

Each swimmer must put on the chip to record his time.

Provisioning

Each swimmer must bring their own supplies to avoid incompatibilities between the technical products usually consumed and those provided by the organization.

The swimmer must deliver to the kayaker the provisioning and give the instructions on how to take it.

The swimmer will approach in front of the kayak without being able to catch the boat, row or any other element that could be used to tow the swimmer, which would imply disqualification.

The provisioning can also be done standing up or at a fixed point, but without taking any advantage advancing the position, which would lead to disqualification.

The swimmers will ask for the product and will be supplied by baskets to catch the product.

The waste will be deposited in the same basket, respecting the river and its conservation.

We recommend hydrating every 30' and taking solid food.

A good nutrition and hydration during the whole crossing can avoid moments of extreme fatigue at the end of the swim and cramps at the water exit.
