SouthWest Region Open Water Regional Championships 2019 Cancelled

Sent: 16th August

Swim England South West Region Open Water Championships 2019

 Regrettably the Open Water Committee has taken the decision to cancel the Regional Open Water Championships for this year.  As competitors will be aware it was hoped to stage the event (postponed from July) on September 7th but unfortunately despite contacting several clubs and companies we have been unable to obtain enough on-water cover (canoes/paddle boards) to ensure the safety of our swimmers.   Refunds to entrants will be addressed once costs incurred through this cancellation have been assessed. 

 Our competition manager (Kelly) who has been keeping you updated is away on holiday but she will be contacting you after the Bank Holiday.  In the meantime it would be appreciated that you do not try to get in touch with her – she is, like all of us, a volunteer.
