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

20 Aug 2021Calling all Wordpress Developers!

Hello friends of CS&PF!

Are you looking for an opportunity to get involved and give back to the open water swimming community?

The CS&PF website needs a refresh and we are looking for experienced Wordpress developers who are familiar with integrating APIs.

We like to pull together interested people to create a new website, work with our backend system architect to display live tracking information and help us migrate across data from the existing website. 

If you are interested or would like any additional information, please contact Deirdre at

Thank you in advance. We look forward to hearing from you
