Stage swims can also have more than a 24-hour break between each leg.
The stage swim from Los Angeles to San Diego was conducted over ten days.
Types of Stage Swims
A stage swim is different from a Continuous stage swim. In a traditional stage swim, the swimmer begins the swim on each day at the exact point where the swim on the previous day was finished. In a Continuous stage swim, the swimmer is allowed to float with the currents and tides and begins the swim on each day at whatever point the swimmer wishes.
The swim can be Assisted or Unassisted. If Assisted, the swimmer can wear or benefit from a wetsuit, protective swimwear, technical swimsuit, fins, paddles, wetsuit, shark cage or protective jellyfish cage. If Unassisted, the swimmer wears only traditional swimwear (as defined by the English Channel swimming community), goggles, ear plugs and one swim cap. In either Assisted or Unassisted swims, the stage swimmer can swim together with a pace swimmer.
