17/05/13: The Cairns Mudcrabs Masters Swimming Club are holding a social open water swim at Lake Eacham on Sunday 26 May 2013. We hope to offer two distances – 1.5km and 3km (depending on volunteer availability). Please register for the swim by 5:00 PM, Thursday 23rd May by emailing each swimmers name and swim distance to Mudcrabs@mudcrabs.org.au. NO registration on the day.
Sign in is from 8:15 AM and closes at 8:45 AM. Swim briefing is at 8:45 AM and the swim starts at 9:00 AM. Please do not arrive at 8:50 AM – it isn’t fair to our volunteers. Swimmers who miss the briefing will not be able to participate for safety reasons. Paddlers are required – Mudcrabs will supply the kayaks & safety equipment, we just need competent paddlers to assist with safety on the day. A Paddlers briefing will be held at 8:30 AM. Please advise of available paddlers names when registering, paddlers will be confirmed on Friday 24th.
Masters Qld registered swimmers are covered by insurance and whilst social swimmers are welcome to swim, you do so at your own risk.
