Swimmers may register for a maximum of FIVE individual events and all relays. Registrations of relays will be done by the team captains a few weeks before the competition.


* The 800m freestyle competition is limited to a maximum of 80 swimmers. With more than 40 entries, the heats will be swum in double occupancy (2 participants per lane). In this case the time will be taken by hand.



The Düsseldorf Dolphins take over the organisation. Sabine Sangel and her team have many years of experience in organising the Düssel-Cup.
