Open Water Swimming at Glyn Neath lakes Guidelines for 2021 and COVID Return to open water swimming at Glynneath Lakes will be starting from Monday 10 th May 2021. As in previous years all members will be required to sign a disclaimer if they wish to use this facility as these are not club lead or coached sessions and swimmers will swim there at their own risk and will not covered by club insurance. Due to COVID, the size of groups allowed to meet up (max 30 people) will put some restrictions on how many swimmers can attend and as such the lakes manager has given clubs extra days/hours to swim. All swimmers MUST now follow these guidelines, otherwise lake access will be withdrawn from clubs this year. Access to lakes, days and times As we share the lake with other triathlon clubs and water users (Jetskis, water skiing, divers), each club has been given a dedicated night to swim and we also have shared club swims outside of this night.  Morning lake swimming available to all clubs from Monday to Saturday 7am – 9am (out of the water by 9am) up to 10 spaces will be allocated to each club. This will be one booking slot.  Clubs will have an exclusive 90-minute session each week between the hours of 6pm – 9pm (out of the water by 9pm) 30 places will be available to each Club. We share our night with PTH. Tuesdays - Celtic Tri and Port Talbot Harriers Thursdays - Rhondda Tri and Merthyr Tri Allocated clubs nights will rotate weeks so they will have an early session (6pm – 7.30pm) and late session (7.30pm – 9.00pm) A system will be in place to allow a clear transition for clubs leaving and entering the lakes, this to be confirmed on the Members Lakes Facebook group. There will be a Friday session available to all 4 clubs and up to 10 spaces will be allocated to each club. This session will be from 7:30pm – 9pm. This will be one booking slot. All sessions will be required to be booked via the clubs’ own track and trace system and made available for 21 days to other clubs, if any club member the shows signs or symptom of COVID.
