NYP TRI OPEN WATER SWIMMING 2018

The club is fortunate to have access to the lake at Ripon Racecourse. We aim to open the swimming from May until late September each year on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays when there is no horse racing at the racecourse. We will inform members by email and on facebook as soon as the lake temperature has reached the required 11 degrees.

There is a strict safety procedure each session
A Co-ordinator of Open Water Swimming (COWS) must be present and you must swap your OW SWIM CARD for a WRIST BAND before you start swimming.

SWIM TIMES
