2016 Application Forms

Application forms for 2016 swims are now available for previews.

A reminder to all our 2016 swimmers keen to start applying for next summer's swims: CS&PF Office will start sending Solo and Relay Application forms from mid-January 2016 when bookings have been confirmed with our pilots.

However you can already preview the forms available to download from the Documents page. Please note:

  • Solo and Relay Forms available on this page are just samples: please do not send these to the CS&PF Office, they will be rejected. Please wait for the official email/notification from the CS&PF office that your swim booking has been confirmed with the pilot.
  • If you have already completed a swim satisfying our assessment swim criteria, you can download and complete the Assessment Swim Form. However do not send it to the CS&PF Office yet, it will only be accepted with a valid Solo or Relay form (or once your swim form has been processed).
  • If you have a booked appointment with your doctor / physician / GP, you can download and print the Medical Assessment Form. However this form will be valid for 2016 swims only if completed after 1st January and if it is sent with a valid Solo or Relay Application form .

Please read the notes at the beginning of each form, they clearly state when and how the forms should be completed and sent to the CS&PF Office.

We hope everyone is enjoying their training and looking forward to the 2016 swim season.
