Open Water Swimming
During the summer months we take the opportunity to take advantage of the great outdoors and organize ad-hoc open water swims at the Pond (in Rockcliffe) and Meech Lake usually followed by a meal. Subscribe to get notified when these swims are occurring.
These activities are not included as part of the club membership. Any risks associated with these activities are assumed by the individuals choosing to participate. The club assumes no liability for anyone participating in these activities.
There are two open water swimming races in the Ottawa area that the team takes part in:
July 11, 2020 Bring on the Bay 3k and 1.5k
Aug. 8, 2020 Riverkeeper 4k, 1.5k and 750m
