Dover training cancelled

Local regatta forces swimmers to train elsewhere

Unfortunately there will be no Dover training on Saturday 27th July due to a local regatta. 

The beach crew considered other locations but there's no where suitable locally for the volume of swimmers we get each week. 

Training will go ahead as usual on Sunday 28th July. 

Please let as many people as possible know to save them any unnecessary travel.
