Due to the nature of sea swimming, the reserve dates will come into play if the weather conditions are unsuitable for the sea session or the water quality make it unsafe for swimming. We will try to provide as much advance warning as possible if a session needs to be postponed but this will be due to environmental factors outside of our control.
