WETSUIT USAGE: The Chief Race Referee will take a water temperature reading on the morning of the race to make a final decision as to whether wetsuits will be worn.

Remember that no inmate will be allowed to escape without the Jailbreak swim cap. MINIMUM ESCAPE: Inmates will be required to complete one lap of the swim course. Feather banners will be on the shore to guide escapees back to the swim exit and buoys will be clearly placed to direct inmates around the course.
