Open Water competitions

The Region organises Open Water Championships in July each year and has, for successive years, had the highest swimmer entry numbers of any regional open water event.

Details of the Championships are usually published in spring.

The event is reliant on our hard-working volunteers to ensure it is a success.  Anyone interested in volunteering at the event should contact

Open water officials

There is a well-established Open Water Swimming Officials Pathway that takes officials from the entry point of Judge Level 1, all the way through to becoming a FINA referee.

Find out more about this Pathway on our official’s training page.
