The Random Rainbow Relay (6x50 metres freestyle)

All swimmers get either a red, yellow, orange, green, blue or purple swim cap, and they swim in the order of the rainbow. You can already register now by sending your time for 50 metres freestyle to . Please send it like this: First Name Last Name 0:30:15. Be accurate – as that makes the relays more balanced. Then we will set you up with your new team friends.
