Event cancelled due to yellow warning of thunderstorms. Yellow warning means either high probability of low impact weather event or low probability of high impact weather event. I think cancelling was premature and the organisers should have just warned competitors there was a risk the event may be cut short in the event of lightning. On the day the temperature was cool and it was perfectly safe to swim. In fact I swam at my local lake where the organisers said they agreed the decision to cancel was premature. There were a lot of competitors who had trained many months for this event and booked accommodation. The met office grading system of yellow/amber/red is meant to convey likelihood and severity of weather. Cancelling an event at the lowest level of warning just doesn’t make sense. I won’t be booking another swim with this organisation.

The event was cancelled less than 24 hrs before it, which meant losing the cost of accommodation

Hello I am very much looking forward to doing this swim. Can anyone tell me how much time you are allowed to spend in each transition? How are the times worked out do they include the transition times? Thanks in advance
Hey there, just to let you know you can spend as long as you need at the feed stations, however, the timer does not stop, so if you're looking for a quick time I would recommend spending as little time at the each station. All the best!
Do you have details of where the official photographs from Jubilee 2019 will be?
