WELCOME TO EAST DORSET'S FINEST

OPEN WATER SWIMMING CLUB

LATEST ANNOUNCEMENT

Dear Members
The EDOWSC committee has been in discussions trying to look at possible ways in which we could re-open the club this season. Sadly, under current guidance, it does not look as though this will be possible, and so we have taken the difficult decision to cancel the season.
This decision has not been taken lightly. Due to current restrictions on mass gatherings and social distancing the committee felt it would be impossible to provide a Covid Secure Compliant service. The Committee also believes that water safety cover would be compromised and potentially put our volunteer lifeguards in close contact with swimmers in an emergency.
Any members who paid their annual subscription at the AGM in March will receive a full refund.
The Club is looking to run the 10km event on the 13th September 2020 for 2019 club-members only. This as always will involve a staggered start and entrants will participate entirely at their own risk. Swimmers will have to provide their own beach walkers.
We are also looking at the feasibility of having an end of season social event if the Coronavirus Regulations allow. Further details on the above events will be posted shortly.
In the meantime the club is going to set up a private Facebook group called The Friends Of EDOWSC in Lockdown. This will facilitate club members to arrange to meet other members in an informal manner to swim. Details will be posted on Facebook very soon.
We are very much looking forward to welcoming you all back next season and hope to see you in the water soon.
All the Best
The Committee EDOWSC
