Event notes
Welcome to the Port Elliot Open Water Swim (900m and 1,800m) hosted by the Atlantis Masters Swimming Club.

Swimmers, please note that the site of the Port Elliot Open Water Swim is undergoing construction of a new Surf Club on the site of the old club. Our intention is to hold the event with the same course as previous years and to set up on the grass adjacent to the Kiosk (Flying Fish) as in previous years. If we are unable to get access, our Plan B is to run the event from the temporary surf patrol area about half way along the beach. We will confirm and notify swimmers via email and facebook closer to the event.

Wetsuit Policy: All swimmers are welcome to use a wetsuit for the swim if they wish. The organisers will adopt the FINA rules for the awarding of prizes and will award prizes under a wetsuit category if the recorded water temperature is between 18 degrees and 20 degrees. If the water temperature is above 20 degrees, prizes will not be awarded under a wetsuit category, but swimmers remain welcome to swim in a wetsuit.

The organisers will advise the water temperature and any other conditions on the morning of the swim via the Atlantis Masters Swimming facebook site: https://www.facebook.com/AtlantisMastersSwimmingClubInc/

Cancellation Policy: Weather conditions and water temperature in particular can contribute to an unsafe environment for swimmers. Atlantis Masters consults with the Surf Lifesavers and has an experienced Medical Officer on its team. Where we consider conditions to be unsafe, we will make the decision to cancel the event. Atlantis Masters incurs significant cost in running the event, irrespective of whether the event is held or not held. For this reason, we are unable to offer a refund to swimmers if the event is cancelled on the day of the swim. Please refer to the Masters Swimming SA refund policy at
