For those concerned about this being an open water swim (OWS). The Mini course is just off the shoreline in chest deep water. You will be able to stand up when you need to (unless you are 4'4"). I always have plenty of kayak support. For the Sprint you will be close to shore as well. Just a little deeper water (5'+). There will be lifeguards along the shoreline as well.
