Open water swimming can be challenging. By being a TOWS Member and booking a TOWS@Combs ticket you acknowledge and respect the procedures put in place by Glossop Triathlon Club for your safety. Members will, to the best of their ability, Tow-the-line and take their own responsibility to ensure that they and others have a safe & enjoyable swim.
To Tow-the-line and join us on the 350m marked course you need to be able to swim 400m unaided in a swimming pool and be over 16. A 750m course is also available depending on water temperature and safety cover.
Summer Open Water Swim (TOWS) Membership is available at the monthly fee (£15) or as Pay-as-You-Go for £7.50 cash per booked session. The PaYGo fee covers the costs for the openwater session (£5.00) plus a membership element to the Club (£2.50).
TOWS@Combs is run on a voluntary basis by friendly trained safety volunteers on the water and land based spotters, with a checking in and out process. Our safety procedures and risk assessments are reviewed every year and water quality testing is undertaken regularly.
TOWS is run on a not-for-profit basis with all proceeds going towards hire of Combs Sailing Club, Canal & Rivers Trust licence, car parking, equipment and safety training, and for GTC to develop training and other Club facilities.
