Ok, we usually have waves for our swim starts (pool), but next season we're going to try a rolling start. Anyone have an opinion on this, do you prefer swim waves?

Because our priority is to deliver quality events, we are still sticking to just 2 per lane. The formula will still be the same as when we did allocated swim waves, the slower swimmers going earlier and the racing snakes later. Although technically speed won't matter as all our swim lanes are wide enough to swim side by side.

Rolling starts do provide an even spacing over the course. With waves, there's always large gaps between groups
