Note re Maui OW swims. Because of low numbers of swimmers, many have been cancelled while we work out how to safely and within all the requirements of USA-Swimming and USMS. Sadly this has caused cancellations to many triathlons and the long-running Aluminum Man series on Maui. Next year we hope to bring back one more swim ... probably Polar Bear by change of venue.
