Welcome to the Chalkwell Redcaps website
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.
All swimmers must be solely responsible for making their own assessment as to the risks involved in any particular swim. The decision to participate in any swim must be taken individually, and swimmers must not rely (in whole or in part) on views or information provided by Chalkwell Redcaps and/or its members.If you are in any doubt about the safety of a swim or your ability to complete it, you should not take part.
Please use the above menu options to take a look around the site. This website is just for information, signing up to this webisite does not intimate membership to Redcaps. The majority of club communications are run through their Facebook group.
The club is affiliated to the British Triathlon Federation.
