Based on last year, I didn't do the race briefing but the organiser was OK with it. In terms of registration & racking, we all did that on the Saturday - they were a bit anal about the race belt having 3 clips but I think they just gave out safety pins for those with only 2 (Atom may have had one of them).
They opened the lake for practice swimming on the Friday & Saturday & plenty took part. Don't remember a race on the Sat afternoon but wouldn't have done it anyway.
Hopefully you'll have the cool-ish weather that we had.
