Come for a dip at Oanob

24 February 2019 | Sports

If you know how to do more than the doggy paddle and the heat is enough reason to get you inside the water, then listen up.

The Point Break open water swim takes place at Lake Oanob on 3 March. For the brave who know how to handle the water, there is a 5 km race. Those wanting to use this race as FINA qualifier, should complete it within 2 hours and 15 minutes and should be registered with NASU.

Costs for swimming in this category is N$240 per entry.

The 2.1 km swim costs N$210 while the 700 m swim will set you back N$190. Children wanting to participate in the children's swim only pay N$20 and entry for this fun event closes on 25 February. Late entries will cost athletes N$300 and close at 09:10 on the day of the event. Online entries for the other categories close at 12:00 on 27 February.

The 5 km swim starts at 09:00, the 700 m at 09:30 and the 2.1 km at 10:00. The fun swim starts at 11:00 where children can participate with their parents or another competent swimmer. All children will receive a finisher's medal. While there are no prizes for positions, the children's cap numbers are included in a lucky draw.

Other athletes participating in the races compete for prizes worth N$42 000.
