TRANSITION AREA MAP


SWIM COURSE

The 2.4 and 1.2 mile swim will take place in Gallants Channel in salt water.  The swim will start in deep water in a counter clockwise direction.  The swim date and time are set by the current so the tide will be lag meaning the swimmers will have no current.

The flat and fast bike course will start in the Town of Beaufort and send the riders through the town of Morehead City, Newport, Havelock and the rural roads of Craven County.  The 112 mile bike will include a 2 1/2 loop section outside of town.

Practice days are being arranged to allow participants to try out the Half Booty courses.  These practice days will give participants the opportunity to become familiar with the courses and the Crystal Coast while hanging out with other "mateys" participating in the Half Booty event.  There will be no charge to participate in the practice days which will include course information (with turn-by-turn instructions), ride leaders, and minimal support.  

Although there is no charge to participate in the practice days, participants are requested to register for our planning and to allow us to keep everyone adequately informed.
