Who we Swim With

There are several groups on the North East coast. Most swims are arranged via dedicated group pages on Facebook.

These groups are to arrange social swims. Be aware that there is no safety cover, no insurance and no guarantee of your safety. Members are expected to follow the OSS Swim Responsibility Statement Most, if not all of these groups, incorporate the OSS Swim Responsibility Statement. 

If you want to swim where insurance and safety cover are provided you will have to look for that yourself; I can not help you.

We swim mostly with the Cullercoats Open Water Swimmers (COWS), as they're geographically nearest to us, but there are other groups too, including: 

Blyth and District All Season Swimmers (BADASS)

Tynemouth Outdoor Swimmers

Alnick and Amble District Open Water Swimmers

North East Open Water Swimmers

Fausto Bathing Club (Roker, Sunderland)

Panama Swimming Club (Whitley Bay)
