This application form must be completed at least 3 weeks before the Exmoor Open Water Swim

Having already entered the event you have confirmed your competency for completing the required distance for the Exmoor Open Water Swim, with distances ranging from 1km to 6km distances.

For all distances we recognise that some swimmers, who swim regularly without a full wetsuit in open water, would also like to take part without wearing a wetsuit for our events. To do so we require sufficient background information to broadly assess your recent experience of swimming without a wetsuit for both the water temperature and swim distance. The water temperature at Wimbleball Lake, Exmoor, in September is likely to be around 16C. Please note, the ambient temperature will also have an impact on the perceived temperature at the end of the swim.

This non-wetsuit application form should ONLY be completed by those who are looking to participate without a full wetsuit, i.e. swim “skins” (by full wetsuit we mean neoprene from cuff to ankle). Junior swimmers (under 18) will not be permitted to swim “skins” under any circumstances.

If you intend to swim “skins” you should submit the form by the following deadline:

  • 11 September 2021 – (event 25 September 2022)

In the unlikely event that we refuse your application, you will be offered a full refund unless you choose to compete with a wetsuit (this must be confirmed to us at least two weeks in advance of the event).

Thanks – the Team at Exmoor Open Water Swim.
