***The Tamar Swim - Saturday 15th June***

Sunday 15th June - The Tamar Swim - Social swim
There are a maximum of 50 places available for The Tamar Swim on June 15th
and you will not be able to enter on the day if I have 50 already pre-registered.
To pre-register email me at barkerpab@aol.com and I'll send you details..........
This years' Tamar Swim will start at 10.00 AM on Saturday 15th June and is a swim of approx 1200 Metres 
below the Tamar Bridges from Saltash to England and back.
It is free to enter but a suggested donation on the day of £5 to go to Horizons Childrens sailing Charity
 would be appreciated.
High tide is at 10.35AM and we need to start promptly so please be in the car park in front of The Union Pub
 on the waterfront below the bridges by 9.15 as you will need to register and sign a disclaimer so I know 
who's in the water and, more importantly, that you are all out safely. 
There is a very strong current here and also danger from other water users (boats) so to take part in this 
swim you must be a strong swimmer and capable of swimming at least a mile in open water at a temperature 
of 13 degrees without assistance.
You must read the SwimSafe advice here http://www.devonandcornwallwildswimming.co.uk/swimsafe and all 
swimmers must wear a brightly coloured swimhat (provided by themselves). 
Tamar Canoe Club and a boat from Horizons will be on hand to help out but there is NO SAFETY COVER so

Please read the SwimSafe advice  (CLICK HERE)  before attending a swim or event.
Social swim means just turn up and join in - no need to pre enter - but nice if you could go to the facebook link to say you're attending. No safety cover.
Event - an organised event normally with an entry fee and safety cover.
A lot of our swims are more spontaneous so keep an eye on the facebook pages for what's going on.
