British Long Distance Swimming Association – One Hour Postal Swim

British Long Distance Swimming Association – One Hour Postal Swim

Seaclose SC has decided to make available lanes on the following Saturday mornings between 6.45 and 7.45 for those interested in entering the BLDS hour postal swim.

The proposed Saturday mornings are:

  • 21st January
  • 28th January
  • 4th February
  • 11 February 
  • 19th February

Please can you let us know by EMAIL only via clubsecretary@seaclosesc.co.uk two preferred dates and we will try to accommodate you as best we can.

For those who have never entered, the objective of the swim is for individual swimmers to achieve the greatest possible distance within one hour.  Swimmers are split into different age categories which are calculated on ages on 1st January, in the year of the swim (ie 2017 this time) as follows:

Under 10’s                Open                          35 – 39 years            55 – 59 years            75 – 79 years

10 – 11 years            20 – 24 years            40 – 44 years            60 – 64 years            80 – 84 years

12 – 13 years            25 – 29 years            45 – 49 years            65 – 69 years            85 years plus

14 – 15 years            30 – 34 years            50 – 54 years            70 – 74 years

 

The cost is £4.00 per swimmer which should be paid by bank transfer before you complete your swim.   Each swimmer must also have their own length counter with them who should be a responsible adult.  This person will record the number of lengths swum.  The club will then submit the sheets to the BLDSA by 1 March, by which time all the swims must have been completed.   

Any questions please ask either Gavin Muncaster or Julie Van der Helstraete.
