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.
