There will be no spectators allowed to attend at this time.

Please note wetsuit hire will not be available.

Each session will have a maximum of 20 participants at a time to make social distancing more manageable and reducing risk of transmission.

The building, changing and toilet facilities will not be open. You will need to arrive ready to swim or get ready next to your car. Please remember this is a public site and there may be children around so if you do plan on changing in the car park please bring a dry robe/towel with you.

Once you arrive on site you will be asked to adhere to the following procedures:

  • A member of staff will meet you at the main entrance gate, check you are booked on to the session and direct you to park, please park responsibly.
  • Once you are ready to swim you will be asked to wait on the beach whilst adhering to social distance guidelines of 2m minimum between other swimmers. Do not enter the water until you are instructed to by staff.
  • Once the safety team are ready for you to enter the water you will be instructed to one at a time at regular intervals to make sure there is plenty of space between swimmers.
  • We will be operating 2 loops a 200m and 400m, allowing for maximum space between swimmers reducing the risk of transmission as much as possible
  • Once in the water please be respectful of other swimmers and concentrate on your sighting. If you do have to overtake a swimmer please do so with as much space as possible.
  • On exiting the water you will not be allowed to congregate or have a chat, sorry. You will have to leave the site straight after your session has finished. 

Please do not arrive earlier than 5 – 15 minutes before your start time as this causes congestion in our car park and defeats the purpose of controlling the group sizes.
