OPEN WATER SWIMS IN THE SEA & LAKES

Open water swims for a range of abilities

2021-2022 Season

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 swims alongside our triathlons in south west england. With timing & water safety teams in place we’re able to keep the cost reasonable. Most of our events are sea swims 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.
