They must include their consent to the entry with full name and phone contact in the Emergency contact field on the online entry form. Leaving just a phone number, a first name, or a number and first name will not do. Entries of U18 swimmers are not complete without this complete parental/guardian consent.
Conditions – This is a surf beach, with banks, gutters, etc. But it receives considerable protection from the most difficult conditions from the south by Moon Island offshore and by the breakwater forming the entrance to Swansea Channel.
