Re: Swim Across Lake Zurich

Is it actually allowed to cross the lake alone ?

I dont want to get hauled aboard a boat from the Wasserschutzpolizei for not having a permit or something similar, and my current Job does not allow me to do it on the official day.

Doc.

Absolutely. But you may be supervised by the Seepolizei (Lake Police) all the time without noticing anything. They however WILL intervene if you get into danger in any way

The most important thing is to study the movements of the heavy ships and to plan accordingly
