About Paradise Island Swim 2020: Intention To Qualify

On Sat 15th Aug 2020, Try A Tri Guernsey will be leading the second Paradise Island Swim in the event's history: a 5km open water swim from Guernsey to the Paradise Island of Herm. In order to take part in the event, you MUST register your Intention To Qualify by completing this online process. Please spend some time reading through all of the instructions and disclaimers.

Qualification requires you to complete the 5km swim from Havelet to Fermain Bay and back in two hours or under. Ideally you will also attend as many group training sessions as possible. Our qualifying group swim takes place on 1st August (weather dependent; time tbc). If you cannot make the qualifying group swim on 1st August, you should find another group, or arrange your own swim, to complete this 5km open water swim in the qualifying time of under 2hrs, and provide evidence to the event organisers.

Group training in the open water takes place on Sundays, usually in the afternoon. The proposed dates are May 31st, June 14th, June 26th, July 12th and July 26th. You should try to come to as many as you can, but we advise everyone to at least attend the session on June 14th (open water skills development) and the qualifier practice session on July 26th.

Intention to qualify costs £55 and includes a Swim Training Guide, up to 5 group training swims (wih coaches and safety crew) and the group qualifying swim on August 1st.
