Start waves & seeding
No previous qualifications are required to the non-seeded waves. Vacant start waves are shown in the entry. Seeding is done to Vansbrosimningen start wave 1-6, Vansbro Halvsim start wave 1-2 and Vansbro Tjejsim start wave 1-2. This means that the entry system automatically places you in a start wave if you have previous results that correspond to the seeding times. If you do not have a result (three years back in time), you may enter other qualifications to be seeded. Please enter what race you have participated in and the results. Please note that no changes of start waves are made once the start numbers are set. This is for security reasons!
Rules of Competition
The open water events is divided into non-elite (recreational) and elite competition. All participants are asked to approve the competition rules while entering an event.
