London’s Royal Docks, one of the most scenic open water venues in the world, is now providing a unique opportunity to experience open water swimming. Onsite safety, including a safety tagging system for each swimmer, is in place ensuring a safe and enjoyable swim, with water tested fortnightly.
Casual swimming is offered in a separate marked area for those who want to try open water swimming for the first time, or simply enjoy swimming without the pressure of training or competing. Courses for complete beginners are available, starting at level 1 through to level 3.
For competitive training, whether for a triathlon or a ‘Great Swim’, the open space has three standard race distances marked; 400 meters – the distance used in the Super Sprint triathlons, 750 meters – set for Sprint distance triathlons and 1500 meters – the course used for Olympic Triathlons.
