We have been publishing calendars for many years and the numbers of events continues to rise rapidly. We are grateful to race promoters, event organisers and collators who send us details for publication and share events of interest to the open water swimming community, including, but not limited to, British Swimming *, ASA, Open Water Source, Toby at www.overtaquatix.com, the team from findarace.com and www.h2openmagazine.com/.
* designed to be of use for officials looking to gain experience at open water swimming events. The contact details if given are for the person who co-ordinates the appointment of the officials. Organisers are asked to provide opportunities for trainee officials and officials are advised to approach the event contact directly, stating their training requirements if applicable.
The club meets at Shore Road in Poole (just east of Sandbanks) on Tuesdays 6.00 pm for a 6.15 pm swim. The first swim of the 2015 season for Club members will be mid April. Naturally the decision to swim is subject to weather and sea conditions. Contact Gerry Griffin for further details. Sunday swims for Club members who are experienced open water swimmers recommence in May 2015 (same time and place).
Please note initial taster sessions are only available on the first Tuesday of each month (commencing May to September). If bad weather prevents this on the first Tuesday, it will be on the following Tuesday.
