Lovesportsevents are proud to work with the London Royal Docks Open Water Swimming to host this iconic swim race in the heart of London. The race starts in Royal Victoria Dock and takes you through Royal Albert Dock and finally into King George V Dock.
London’s unique and historic water race offers a unique opportunity for this open water swimming race in the heart of the vibrant East End.
The Dock to Dock Race will operate using the NOWCA safety system offering all competitors a safe and enjoyable race and will be managed by our team at LoveSportsevents offering many years of highly successful sports events experience.
NOWCA Safety Wristband
All competitors must have a current NOWCA safety wristband – If you do not already have a band please follow this link to purchase or renew before August 30th
By putting Royal London Docks OWS as your venue you can pick your band up if you choose to train during our regular open water sessions (please see website for details www.londonroyaldocksows.co.uk) or alternatively your band will be available to pick up before registration along with tow floats. NOTE: You will not be able to obtain a wristband online or at race entry on the day of the race!
YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO RACE WITHOUT A CURRENT SAFETY WRISTBAND
The use of tow floats is one of the main reasons we are allowed to hold a race where we can swim through all three docks for the first time ever!. Tow floats that have been purchased with entry will be available to pick up near registration in the morning however we do recommend you train with your tow float before the event and therefore you can arrange to pick this up when you practice during our regular sessions -see website. All competitors must swim with a tow float during the race. Anyone without one will be asked to leave the water.
