A Message from CS&PF Office

Swim application deadline is approaching!

To the 200 solo and relay swimmers whose paperwork has arrived by email in the last three days; and to the 68 solo and relay swimmers whose paperwork was brought by post today:

You have beaten the 30th April deadline. Your applications will be dealt with but having taken up to four months for this paperwork to get to the CS&PF office it may take a little time for an acknowledgement to be sent. Please do not bombard the office with phone calls and emails requesting an immediate acknowledgement.

Thank you for your patience.

To those who have not yet sent their applications and fees:

The deadline for your applications is April 30th. Acceptance of any applications received after this date is at the discretion of CS&PF office and will incur additional charges. To make sure your application is received before the deadline, you may wish to 

  • Send in your application forms and medicals as scanned PDFs by email
  • Use online payments by PayPal to pay for your admin, swim and membership fees
