All swimmers are responsible for their own safety. Planned group swimming can help towards reducing the risks.
Myrtleville is a busy place for swimmers – there are groups of swimmers going in every day – weather permitting. While there isn’t an organised club, there are lots of people with a shared interest in enjoying the sea safely, whether for a quick dip or training to swim a marathon.
1. Don’t swim alone but if you’ve got another swimmer or swimmers with you and are aware of the tides and weather, just pick your own time: enjoy and be careful. We’re a friendly bunch – come down and say hello, work out who you’ll swim with and get in!
2. To arrange to meet other swimmers, you could consider joining the Swim Times WhatsApp group – contact Marcus on zero eight six eight zero four seven seven six four.
Alternatively, you can ask to join the Crosser Swimmers Facebook group – here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/166995470121163/

Once more, with feeling: DON’T SWIM ALONE.
You swim at your own risk. Don’t swim alone. Always swim in groups.
