It is a 24 hour relay where you participate as little or a much as can to help your team through. It starts from 10am on Saturday until 10am on the Sunday. You can have up to 15 people in your team and each team must have a swimmer in the water for every minute of that 24 hours.
So no doubt there is a lot of sleeping going on as well as attempts to keep each other awake for the next shift.
Some people just roster themselves on for a few minutes while other more gung-ho and do a couple of hours at a stretch.
