CHANGE OF VENUE - Blue September Swim, Sunday 27th.
Due to the National Schools regatta being held at the Nelson Yacht Club on the same day and Covid-19 regulations there is a change to the venue for the Blue September Swim.
Registration and swim start will now be from the Nelson Rescue Centre (between THE Yacht Club and Styx/Guytons building).

Given the nature of the event and the challenges of tide and wave conditions, it is important that all athletes feel comfortable and confident swimming 500m front crawl, whilst making significant forward progress at all times. Adherence to this requirement will be at the sole discretion of the race director.
