What Is Considered A Legal Swimsuit?
Over the past 18 months, the swimming world has been a frenzy of controversy over the emergence of technology in swimsuits. FINA has recently implemented rules around legal swimsuits that will take effect on January 1, 2010. You can read more about this topic here. This swim will adhere to the FINA rules that will be implemented in January. Those rules define a legal swimsuit as: made of textiles and coverage of the body from “knees to navel for men” and “knees to shoulder straps” for women. Anything not adhering to these rules, will be considered a wetsuit.
There is plenty of parking on the day of the event at the end of Van Ness next to the Muni Pier at Aquatic Park.
