One of the most sought after events on the HK open water calendar, The re-named  Polson 5  (previously known as “The Five’) returns on Saturday Sept 14, starting from Blake Pier (Stanley Market) and finishing at the temple end of Repulse Bay beach. A thrilling race passing spectacular coastline, The Five is a difficult course and entrants who are not known to us will be asked to provide proof of competency. This race is not for those who wish to ‘have a try’; it is for accomplished and proven ocean swimmers as you may experience choppy, windy conditions, currents, and will at times be isolated and quite a distance from shore. Those who have not passed through the 2 small Tau Chau islands (known as “The Gap”) by 2 hours will be removed from the water. Swim buoys are compulsory. Breaststroke is prohibited. If, in the opinion of the organisers, conditions on the day are not suitable to hold the race, we reserve the right to cancel it and no refund will be given. 在香港開放水域日曆上最受歡迎的活動之一,重新命名的Polson 5(以前稱為“The Five”)將於9月14日星期六返回,從卜公碼頭(赤柱市集)開始,並在寺廟盡頭完成 淺水灣海灘。 通過壯觀的海岸線,驚險刺激的比賽,體驗是一個艱難的過程,我們不認識的參加者將被要求提供能力證明。 這場比賽不適合那些希望“試一試”的人; 它適用於成熟且經過驗證的海洋游泳運動員,因為您可能會遇到波濤洶湧,多風的條件,潮流,並且有時會被隔離並且距離海岸很遠。 那些沒有通過2個小小的頭洲(被稱為“The Gap”)2小時的人將被從水中移走。 游泳浮標是強制性的。 禁止蛙泳。 如果主辦方認為當天的條件不適合舉辦比賽,我們保留取消比賽的權利,不予退款。

Prizes: Medals for Top 3 in each category (Male / Female, Under 20 / 20-39 / 40-49 / 50 & Over). Trophies for overall champions.  獎項: 每個組別頭3名將獲得獎牌 (男子/女子,20歲或以下 / 20-39 / 40-49 / 50或以上)。總冠軍將會獲得獎杯。
