OPEN WATER SWIMMING IN THE SEA & LAKES
Open water swimming for a range of abilities
Also known as wild swimming, open water swimming is a truly liberating sport. Open water swimming was already popular before the pandemic. But with all the pools closed its popularity exploded. We organise a range of open water swimming events alongside our triathlons in Devon, south west England. With timing & water safety teams in place, we’re able to keep the cost reasonable. Most of our events are sea swimming events but we also have lake swims.
WHAT KIT DO I NEED?
We follow British Triathlon guidance on wetsuits. So if the water temperature is 14C or less wetsuits are compulsory. In practice this means they’re normally compulsory for the Dartmouth Swims in the sea in June but generally optional at our other Devon swims in July & September.
