    I plan on swimming Kapas Marang Swimathon in March/April 2019. The swim is centered on Trengannu in Malaya. I Need any and all help and encouragement I can get. I will be 76 and it is my first venture in Marathon Swimming.

    Good luck @swimpapaswim - just googled and Pulau Kapas looks amazing! What a beautiful swim! Happy training - this forum is a great resource and you can find a lot from searching previous threads but please do post any specific questions you have!

    tried to goggle the event and it tells me "your location (south Africa)" has been blacklisted :) :)

    Hi, Are you still planning on doing the Kapas Swim? I have done it a few times and have a fair bit of info.

    Let me know.

    This seems to be appropriate distance for my current stage of training, but it will be a hot water race!

    Water is warm, but havent found it too hot.

    I typed up a spiel on this swim a few years ago when I was trying to convince some friends to come do it from Australia which they subsequently did. It is here


    It is a few years old but might help.
