I agree with you that the rules setted by HKASA is not fair.|
Cat 1 has the top priority but it is the 1,500m pool event (pool event is not similar to open water).
Cat 2 includes 3.5K, 5K and 10K. 5K and 10K are by invitation but not open for the general public participation.
Cat 3 2K is most similar to the corss harbour swim but has the least priority.
Though I am exempted from the water test, it does not imply I can straight-in to join the Swim.
HKASA have another set of selection criteria for those who are exempted from the water test.
Due to my old age (50+), I cannot finished the 3.5K swim last year within 1 hr. (i.e. the pre-setted time frame). I finished the swim in 7x minutes.
