Open Water Sessions
We have had the water tested and this year it is even cleaner than last year, with none of the pollutants looked for found! we still recommend that the water is not drunk.
Open water sessions are due to start on Saturday 20th April at 08:30; the session is for two hours. This is dependent on the water temperature getting to 11°C. Wet suits will be compulsory until the water temperature gets to 14°C, a maximum of 2 laps. Wet-suit gloves, socks & hats are permitted.
Sign-up pages are on the website for volunteers to sign-up for marshaling, we need a minimum of 3 for each session (8:15-9:30 & 9:30 – 10:45). The time for marshals are loner than the swim sessions to cater for setting up and pulling down & putting away the tent and other equipment. No previous experience necessary, there will always be someone that has done it before to show you the ropes.
