Safety Reminder for Open Water Swimmers


Even though the winter weather has arrived, it is great to see so many members keeping up their routine of swims at Doddi's, Town Beach, Henry Sutton Reserve and all places in between.


However, it is important to remember to swim safely and look out for each other; i.e. wear a bright coloured swim cap; swim with a buddy of similar speed; take turns in spotting for your friends; and be conscious of and look out for others who might be showing the early stages of hypothermia.


Importantly, please respect the power of the ocean and only swim if it is safe for you to do so.
