The Most Unique Turn Buoy In The Open Water World

Courtesy of Doug Woodring, race director for the Clean Half Extreme Marathon Swim, Hong Kong 2015, California.

The open water swimming world’s most unique and interesting turn buoy is shown 1 minute 9 seconds into the video posted above. Highly visible and musical, the famed ‘tunes buoy‘ that cannot be missed.

The 9th annual Clean Half Extreme Marathon Swim was held in Hong Kong from Stanley to Deep Water Bay. It is a 15 km sea swim with carbon-neutral relay teams of 5 people, soloists, and yak swimmers (i.e., 2 swimmers and a kayak who rotate every 30 minutes through the course).

Video photographers included Carlos Leung, Jimmy Leung, Eddie Hui Bon Hoa, Jan Chan,Coleman Lam, Christine Yang, and Doug Woodring.

Clean Half 2014 – Results!

Clean Half Swimmers,

Great day out there today! Thanks everyone for making it a great event, with particular thanks to the paddlers who were critical in supporting all of the solo swimmers!

The currents were strong today, and the times reflected that, but that shows us the subtle power of nature when we least expect it! Great work by the brother/sister combo of Benjamin and Jemma Freeman who at 16 and 17 respectively won the solo swims for Men’s/Women.

Thanks to all of the volunteers, and also the Eclipse Group and High Five for their support with some of the awards.

We look forward to seeing you again soon, and maybe at The Five on Nov. 9th. (

Here are the results from the day – Teams


Some of the tracking worked very well, but there were a few glitches……but for the first year, a great start. Here are the tracks for those which were activated on the swim:

Clean Half6 – Men’s

Clean Half 7 – Mixed 2

Clean Half 2 – Mixed 3

Clean Half 4 – Mixed

Clean Half 5 – Men’s

Clean Half 1 – Solo 2

See you In, On or Under the Water, and don’t forget to help protect what we all like to swim in!

Clean Half 2014!

Calling All Swimmers,

Looks like a great day tomorrow!! Don’t forget the sunscreen even though they say there might be a few clouds.

We will be doing the registrations on the Stanley Sea School Pier tomorrow (where you usually load for the support boats). We will have 3 registration desks: (1) 10am Start, (2) 11am Start, and (3) Solo Swimmers. Please just send one person from your team to register and get the waiver form dealt with if you have not all signed it. ALSO, we will put your team number on the back of your hand, so we will have a Numbering location where the rest of your team can get “numbered” on their hand after registration.

Race Briefing for 10am Start will be at 9:30am, near the end of the pier.

Race Briefing for the 11am start will be at 10:20am.

We will also be giving you a laminated Race Team number to be placed on the window of your boat. Please return these to us after the race, so please remember to grab these from the boat.

Waivers: These teams/solos have already signed waivers, so there is NO NEED to sign them again tomorrow. For those of you who have not, one is attached, if you want to print it out and fill it in with your teammates before you arrive: Sinking Rats, Asia Pacific Adventures, Bubble Fish, Left Laners, White Pointers, Instinet, Lynda C, Bruce P, Mary CA, Gary Claydon, Rob Kusher, Ben Freeman, Simon Holliday.

LIVE TRACKING – LOCATOWEB. If you want your team to be tracked live, please have ONE member of your team download the LocaToWeb app. We will then tell you what code to use in order to be tracked during the race, so your friends can watch your track from anywhere in the world. There will only be 12 tracks per MAP, so there will be 5-6 maps with different team groups on them.

Please remember, the boat drivers are a huge help for this race (we have sucked 55 of them out of the HK speedboat inventory for this race!), so please give them a bit of a tip if you had a good trip. Many of them do not speak English, but they know the course well.

· Do not jump into the water from the front of the boat – only the back.
· Please do not use the showers at the VRC (where the BBQ will be), please use the showers at the public toilet area near the finish line.
· Please do not go upstairs at the VRC unless you are a member. There will be food/drink at the BBQ on the lower level.
· If you have friends who want to join the BBQ, the cost is $125/person. Please let us know asap

if you know of more than 3 extra people coming in your group.
It will be a great day out there, so we look forward to seeing you in the water!
