Open Water Competitions

 

South East Region 2017 Open Water Championship, Age Group and Multi-disability competitions

The entry pack for the South East Region 2017 Open Water Championship, Age Group and Multi-disability competitions is available to download.

Please note the new regulations regarding water temperature and wetsuits. The water temperature at Chichester has consistently been in excess of 20C in previous years and we do not anticipate it falling below 18C; the point at which wetsuits become mandatory. Should the wearing of wetsuits be optional on the day there will be no separate classes for wetsuit and non wetsuit swimmers.

Great Swim in association with British Swimming present a new open water race series for 2017.

The Great British Open Water Elite Series will consist of 4 races over a variety of distances across the summer with overall series cash prizes awarded to the Top 3 male and female athletes and additional prizes in the form of exclusive sponsor product for 4th and 5th placed athletes.

The overall series male and female winners will also be invited to attend a British Swimming Open Water program activity with members of the national team. More information.

Rules around the use of wetsuits for competitive open water swimming have been introduced from 2017.
