Initial Registration Form

(if you have already registered in full please open up the Re-registration form to complete a shorter registration process)

Saturday mornings will see the Wellington Coastal Swim Group take to the brine to mark off another piece of the coastline swam. The swims are endurance and fun focused. The goal will be to safely swim as much of the Wellington coastline as the weather and sea conditions allow over the 2017/18 summer months. There will be a fee of $15/swim to cover costs. 

Conditions will necessitate flexibility in planning - start and finish points maybe altered on the morning of the swims. Please ensure you are signed up to the Traction Fitness Facebook account for ease of communication (link to the FB page above RHS).

With the exception of the Somes Island swim, courses will be set so swimmers remain within 50 m of the coastline at any point, so allowing increased safety through an ease of exit along the courses. Pre-swim safety briefing will before before each swim. 

You must be confident that you have the skills and fitness to swim 3 km in the sea (60-90 mins for most swimmers). If you are unsure call Jenny to discuss (027 24 23527). If any swimmers exit early please ensure you contact me ASAP to confirm. There will be limited kayak support during the swims so the onus will be on swimmers to swim with a buddy & exit the water if required. By signing up you are accepting personal responsibility for your own safety.   

I'm very excited at the prospect of doing something a little different this summer! A spirit of adventure, swim fitness, gear and common sense is all that's required.

Let's swim this harbour!
