Open water swim safety

 “Torbay Tri Club do not organise any open water swimming sessions as we are unable to provide the required safety cover. We appreciate some members may want to arrange their own social swims but you are expected to comply with the Club Rules at all times and take personal responsibility for your own and others safety.”

This is the Club’s official position, supported by the British Triathlon Federation. Please familiarise yourself with the Club Rules at The membership form sets out the basic personal safety requirements which we should all follow wherever we go – nothing onerous, just common sense. The Club Facebook page will continue to be a place where members can arrange their own swim, bike and run sessions with other members.
