RLSS UK’s Open Water Festival


Entry to the event is free for spectators and there will be lots to keep the whole family entertained throughout the day including a fantastic raffle, face-painting, local stallholders and water rescue demos from the Manvers Lake Bears (Newfoundland dogs). Refreshments will be available too – or you can pack a picnic.

Booking is now OPEN so please register as soon as possible to secure your time in the water – places are limited and we expect the event to be very popular.

What’s more, everyone who registers before the event will be entered into a prize draw to win a dryrobe® Advance Change Robe (with thanks to our headline sponsors, dryrobe).
