The entry pack for Swim South East 2018 Open Water Championship, Age Group and Multi-disability competitions is available to download using the link.

Please note the regulations regarding water temperature and wetsuits.  The lowest temperature recorded during the competition at Surrey Quays in recent years was 19.5 degrees (in July 2016). In previous years, it has been 20 to 23 degrees. We therefore anticipate that the competition will most likely be ‘non-wetsuit’. Should the wearing of wetsuits be optional on the day there will be no separate classes for wetsuit and non-wetsuit swimmers.
