Organiser's Description

Join the Captain on September 8th!  Your Mates and Mini Mates will swim in the lazy river, bike through the resort, run through the tropical gardens, and finish it off with a party in the waterpark for the entire family.  Each athlete gets admission to the waterpark, along with free admission for three other family members or buddies.  It’s a fun race in a beautiful resort - come for race day or stay at the hotel and make it a family weekend getaway!  Parents and older siblings or teammates can get in on the act too.  Our Deckhand volunteers get to experience the race right along with the athletes.  Its a great time for some family and team bonding!

The Captains Waves will have separate awards from the age group division. The athletes will be numbered from oldest to youngest, and awards will be based on the number of participants.  The Captains Wave will begin at the beginning of their respective age group wave
Who Qualifies for the Captains Wave?
The Captains Wave was created for those athletes that have their sea legs and are experienced triathletes wanting to race.  These divisions were also designed to add additional safety and fairness within the races.  If your athlete is on a racing team, has a coach, routinely places in other youth races, and wants to test their skills against the other experienced athletes, then the athlete may qualify to compete in the Captains Wave. They should be familiar with all aspects of triathlon, including the rules and regulations for youth triathlons (drafting, spacing, passing, etc), and should have competed in a number of triathlons prior to this event.   If you’re not sure which division is right for your athlete, send the Captain an email and we’ll help you figure it out.  
Note:  A race timeline will be posted on the race site. Upon completion of their race, athletes in the Captain Wave will not be permitted to re-enter transition until the last finisher of the Mates Race is finished.
