As a parent helper I have now chosen to branch out into Open Water officiating. Open Water competitions take place only in the summer months, well from June onwards.
There are plenty of Open (Open) Water competitions throughout England this year.
- Northwest/Northeast in Salford Quays
- London Surrey Docks
- South East Chichester
- East Whitlingham
- National Rother Valley
Anybody can join any meet as long as under-18’s are supervised by a club coach or designated club official. But read the conditions on each individual event to be sure.
One can make a great weekend out of it by booking into local B&B and attending the swim. Fresh air is often guaranteed in the country based locations.
I am learning the phonetic alphabet, pronunciation of the numbers for radio communication purposes.
