Channel Swimming & Piloting Federation "Nothing great is easy", Captain Matthew Webb

06 Jul 2020Coronavirus/ Covid-19 Update

Members & Swimmers,

The CS&PF Committee has continued to monitor the constraints put in place by the UK Government.

We now have official confirmation that the UK Government has withdrawn their previous 11th June guidance on inland and coastal boating.

The appropriate authorities have received and acknowledged the swim lists for 2020.

We expect that channel swimming will resume very shortly.

As always, please keep in contact with your pilot for all your swim planning and the latest updates.

As ever, stay safe,
Best wishes
CS&PF Committee
