This event is usually a lovely day by the beach, if you haven’t tried Open Water swimming before maybe this is the time to consider it! If you don’t want to swim but want to get involved we are always looking for Officials for both shore side and in boats, we will train you, we would love to hear from you; OR if you just want to get involved and volunteer, again please let us know and we will get you involved.
