The Swim is now due to take place in the morning of Sunday 1st September.
Due to easterly winds varying between Forces 3 & 4, verging at times on 5, the original Swim date, Sunday 21st July, has been postponed. “Despite the disappointment of the 50 swimmers and the many support organisations and individuals, the safety of all involved is paramount”, said Chris Osborne, Chair of Tenby Sea Swimming Association, organisers of the event. “However, we hope all understand our decision, taken at 7am this morning in conjunction with Coastguard and Water Safety Team representatives.”
“We have already chosen a replacement date to ensure as many as possible of the swimmers can reschedule their diaries. We look forward to the new date and the continuing support from so many people, to whose commitment we are deeply endebted.”
