Our biggest challenge
The competition for those who are looking for the special swimming challenge.
Note for the athletes: Lake Neusiedl has special pitfalls. Especially wind, waves and currents can be dangerous. From about 20 knots there is a pre-warning / flashing signals, then storm warning. Storm warning or severe weather warning, then there will be no start.
For the two sea crossings buoy duty applies to non-club swimmers. These are provided by HEAD for free.
The organizer reserves the right to require buoys for all participants depending on weather conditions. (This is especially known at higher wind speeds, currents or waves in consultation with the water rescue).
Attention: since 2018, there is a special score for S-swimmers (sports swimmers) with existing club licenses or for ice swimmers without NEO as part of the Austrian Open Water Cup. This is done separately during the registration as age group / competition.
