Open Water Development Day Saturday 28th May 2022 Update!

Open Water Development Day 

Saturday 28th May 2022  

Luxborough Lake Chigwell IG7 5AA/B   

Due to the Pandemic, this is the first year that the Region has been able to offer a training event since 2019.  

The idea of the day will be to prepare those entering the Open Water Regional Event at Norwich by giving new/inexperienced swimmers the opportunity to learn about how to swim in open water and how to race most effectively. 

The day is open to all swimmers who are registered with a London club and who are eligible to enter the Open Water Regional event. Entry will be by means of completing an entry form. Swimmers who have entered the Regional Championships in Norwich will get first priority. Any remaining spaces will then be allocated on a first come first served basis.  

Swimmers entering must be able to demonstrate the ability to swim a minimum of 800m (age 11) or 1,500 m (aged 12 and over) and must be over 11 by 31st December 2022. 

Swimmers must have a wetsuit as water temperature is likely to be below the minimum temperature for costume only. 

Cost is £35 for the day including goody bag
