2-hour and 6-hour qualifying swim deadlines

The deadline to get qualifying swims done for the first tides is fast approaching!!

For all you lucky swimmers who are registered for Channel swims with the CS&PF and are booked to go on the tides starting 30th June - you need to let Kevin Murphy, our Hon. Secretary, have details of your six hour or two hour swims at least 14 days before jumping into the Channel. It probably has not escaped your notice that that means Sunday!

Details can be submitted on assessment forms downloadable from our website.
