OW Development Series

WSMSC’s Open Water Development Series


Entries are open for Weston-super-Mare’s Open Water Development Series at Clevedon Marine Lake. The Series has been designed to start at the beginning of the open water season in May and finish at the end of the open water season in September which coincides with the beginning of the swimming season.

The Series will held over three dates and is open to all Counties in the South West and beyond. We aim to raise the profile of open water swimming by offering competitive opportunities which will develop the next generation of Open Water swimmers in Age, Youth and Masters swimming and Triathletes.

If you haven't tried competitive Open Water swimming before maybe this is the time to consider it! The first event in the series will be a taster to practice all things race pace. We will cover a mini acclimatization, mass start practice, turns around buoys followed by a distance event for each age group. The events will mirror the distances offered last year at Regional Championships in Weymouth. Times will be given to each swimmer but no medals will be awarded for the first event.

Event #2 Sunday 10th June 08:00-13:30
