Warning: is mandatory to swim within 80 metres from the shore.


RETURN:
6 length:
 from Omegna Port to the opposite side of the lake after about 0,6 km, where will be a marker buoy and a check point.

7 length: after the turn, direction to Punta di Crabbia for about 4,6 km. In Punta di Crabbia will be a marker buoy and a check point.

8 length: from Punta di Crabbia to Orta San Giulio-near San Rocco Hotel (marker buoy in open lake to indicate the right direction) after about further 3,4 km.

9 length: from Orta San Giulio-near San Rocco hotel to Imolo (marker buoy and check point) after about 2,0 km.

10 length: from Imolo to Lido di Gozzano (finish line) after about 2,6 km with a marker buoy in open lake to indicate the right direction.

 

After the arrival at 8 lengh, the swimmers must head for the island for about 50 meters where a directional buoy will be placed. The swimmers will have to overcome this bouy, keeping to their left.

This step is necessary to avoid passing near the port of Orta San Giulio.

Then the swimmers must keep to their left and it will be easy for them to follow the right direction thanks to large buoys that the swimmers will keep to their right.

The next point will be the village of Imolo (9 lengh) and from there in the direction of the directional buoy to keep right, heading the Lido and avoiding going to the Miami Beach.

 

The swimmers who will go off course and not pass this check point will be disqualified and immediately rescued by a boat of the organization.

Warning: is mandatory to swim within 80 metres from the shore except in "open lake" between Punta Crabbia and Orta San Giulio and between Imolo and Lido of Gozzano.
