From what we heard on the lady with the fast time was she wanted to do the 1/2 but it sold out so she signed up for the full and did the 1/2 still got her finisher swag and all her splits just dq'd. Some good news for those wanting to go back next year. The tide chart show that the current will be "SCREAMING" for the swim on October 25th 2014. Low tide around 5:30am/High around Noon rising apox 5' most of it between 7 and 9am. Congrats to all...


Possible to post a link to the tide table you looked at?

Thanks...

 I see in the final results that someone got DQ for unsportsmanlike conduct. Curious what happend there. I also saw people listening to music and more than I could count that was being paced by non racers. Do they just not monitor the run course?

Not an expert on this by any means but there is a tide predictor chart which you can input the date and it shows the low and high tides. It should be fairly close to accurate. Low tide should be around 3:30 a.m. and high tide around 9:30 a.m. with high tide at 4.5ft. At the start of the full ironman the tide should be picking up steam and be around 3 feet or so.
