Ironman Swim - How Long Roughly?

Hi all,

I am about to do the swimming leg of an IronMan and am pretty nervous about it all as well as looking forward to it...Can someone give me a rough indication of how long it takes on average to complete the swim? I know different people have different abilities but the average or a rough estimate of time would be good so I can compare it with where I am at...

    a top class swimmer will do about 45- 50 mins ish i think, under an hour is excellent, under 1.30 is still a good time, then anything up to two hours, two hours is usually the cut off point i think.
