Chalkwell Redcaps Chalkwell Redcaps is an Essex based (Southend-on-Sea) open water (Sea,Rivers,Lakes) social swimming group. The group is aimed at swimmers who wish to be involved in organised open water swims. The group is for people who wish to improve their open water swimming or simply share the experience of open water swimming with other like minded people.
We accept people of any age, experience, or ability.
Due to safety issues membership is tightly controlled and we only let a set number of people join each year. Currently we have 275 members. If you are interested in joining REDCAPS then the best way is to join the FACEBOOK group 'Southend on Sea Open Water Swimming'. If you are not on Facebook then you will need to email firstname.lastname@example.org around December time.
The club is affiliated to the British Triathlon Federation.
2016 MEMBERSHIP IS NOW CLOSED
Please be aware that demand for membership is high and the window to join is very small, usually only a couple of weeks due to the volume of applicants and the fact that we have to have a cap on membership due to safety & insurance reasons
We encourage prospective members to join the Facebook group
