Qualification for the 2017/18 Ocean6 Swim Series:
The following athletes have gained automatic qualification into the first three finals of the Ocean6 Swim Series as they placed in the top three last year. They are deemed the “Professionals” and will race in a green rashie.
Men: 1. Daniel Collins, 2. Ollie Signorini, 3. Hamish Chapman.
Woman: 1. Naomi Scott, 2. Lana Rogers, 3. Harriet Brown
At the completion of round three, the professionals will be re-allocated to the overall top three competitors in the 17/18 series. These athletes will automatically qualify into the remaining three finals of the Ocean6 Swim Series.
All six rounds will have heats to determine the remaining athletes to qualify for the finals. These athletes will be deemed the “Challengers.” The men will race in yellow rashies and the woman in pink. The final field size will be determined by race officials on the day depending on conditions. We will be aiming for an ideal final size of 30-40 athletes to allow the greatest chance of qualification for athletes.
For events with;
>40 competitors = points allocated for 20 results
>20 competitors = points allocated for 10 results
>10 competitors = points allocated for 8 results
<10 competitors = points allocated for 4 results
