Register for The Port Nelson Summer Sea Swims at: http://www.nelsontriclub.co.nz/nelsonseaswims/register-for-sea-swim/ The Port Nelson Summer Sea Swims are held each Thursday night at 6.15pm from the Nelson Yacht Club ramp on Wakefield Quay in Nelson, starting on Nov 19, 2020. The final competition night is on March 18, 2021. Each night there will be a short and a long course. The short swim will generally be 200m-500m, while the long swim will be 800m-1500m. Exact distances will vary depending on conditions. Given the nature of these events and the challenges of tide and wave conditions, it is important that all athletes feel comfortable and confident swimming 500m front crawl in open water, whilst making significant forward progress at all times. Adherence to this requirement will be at the sole discretion of the race director. Races run by Nelson Triathlon & Multisport Club
Saturday Coached Swimming - Sessions are from 7:00am to 8.30am with the pool opening at 6:45 to give 10min to get changed and ready. In order to recover the cost of the pool hire and provide a buffer to cover any coaching costs, the cost for the sessions will be $8.00. The correct money in the morning would be most appreciated. If you would like to be involved or know more about these sessions please contact Dick at [masked]
Sunday morning sea swims are at 10:00am. Anyone keen is welcome to join in. We'll meet by the yacht club as usual and the swim courses will vary - depending on the tide and conditions. There is usually a short option for people with limited time and/or energy. RSVP (if you can) so others know who's coming, but spur of the moment is good too - the more the merrier! As always - swims are weather dependent.
Wednesday morning swims (weather dependant) at the new time of 10:00am until further notice. We'll meet at the yacht club parking lot and decide on the course on the day. Please RSVP to let others know you are coming.
