Discussing home-based programmes with your coach where plausible
Extra vigilance with precautionary measures such as hand washing and sanitising, cough etiquette, avoiding handshakes/hugs/physical contact.
Athletes who have any symptoms of respiratory or other illness are advised to refrain from training until symptoms resolve or medical advice is obtained.
If an athlete has recently travelled to an area with coronavirus (COVID-19) and displays any signs and symptoms of respiratory illness (sore throat, cough, fever, shortness of breath), please contact the South Africa COVID-19 HOTLINE: 0800 029 999 (Mon-Fri 8am – 4pm) for advice on testing and/or self-isolation.

ATC Canal Swim Wednesday

Please keep an eye on the ATC NEWS WhatsApp Group as plans may change due to weather or activities around this area.

From Wednesday, 1 July 2020, the swim will be on Wednesdays at 12:00 and Saturday afternoons at 14:00.  During the COVID-19 Pandemic, the swim is run under strict rules and additional measures have been put in place to minimise the risk of spreading the virus.  Members have to pre-book to attend the swim.

The number of people in the area and pontoon has to be limited to a maximum of 8.  This means that swimmers have to pre-book a swim and must only enter the area at designated times.  All changing and preparation must be done at your vehicle, to be parked inside the Battery Park lot (it is free at the moment).  Swimmers will head down to the swim area wearing their wetsuits and face masks, carrying a swim cap, towel, car keys and ATC barcode tags only.  Nothing else can be left in the swim area while you swim.

Click here to book your slot.  We only accept bookings for one swim at a time.  Bookings close at 18:00 the evening before the swim.
You will receive an email with the details you provided, immediately after making your booking.  On the eve of the swim, we will send you another email with confirmed times and final instructions.
 
Please take note of the Covid-19 Symptoms Check List and Terms & Conditions on the booking form.  You will need to accept these when you make your booking and again when you tag in for the swim.
 
Only bookings from active ATC members will be accepted.  We cannot allow any guests during this time.  Please check your membership on our online shop at www.atcmultisport.club or WhatsApp ATC at 0733083127.  It is also vitally important that your contact details on our database are up to date.
 

Swim Start

We start the Canal Swim from the SUP deck at the recently completed Battery Park.  This is the recently opened Urban Park in the area where we originally started our swim from.  Please park in the new Battery Park garage, underneath the Urban Park.  The parking entrance is in the new small road behind the City Lodge.  There is NO PUBLIC Parking in the BATSA or Waterway House parking garages off Dock Road.

Directions from the City or N1:  When you enter the Waterfront via Dock Road from the intersection at the bottom of the M1, take the first left into Alfred Street (before Waterhouse building) and then turn right, just after the City Lodge.  Park in the under-cover garage and exit through the pedestrian / lift lobby. The swim start is to the left, in front of the Trail & Tar and SUP Cape Town shops.

Directions from the Waterfront or Green Point:  Exit the waterfront on Dock Road at the circle next to the Marina, then turn left into. Port Road, which becomes Alfred.  Then turn left just before the City Lodge.

Note that parking is R10 for up to 2 hours.

Please see below for location of the start and our swim.

-----------------------------------------------------------

ATC has been granted permission to use the canals at the V&A Waterfront to do our open water swims.  The canals are CLEAN, SAFE and SHARK FREE!  The water is as cold as the open sea so please bring your wetsuits with. The canals wind from the CCTCC right though the residential area and to the One and Only Hotel, perfect for open water practice! The canal is at no point deeper than 3m and on average is about 1.5m deep.

We start at the new jetty near the Cape Town SUP shop and swim towards the One and Only Hotel.  There are stairs to exit the canal at regular intervals, so you can climb out when you have had enough.  It’s roughly 1.6 Km from the Start, around the One & Only Island, and back.  For longer swims, you can do multiple laps around the Island (500m per lap).

Please do not swim in this canal at other times as we are only allowed to swim there by prior arrangement.

Swimmers are advised to park in the Battery Parking Garage, which is right next to the swim start.  This parking will cost around R10.  Cars parked illegally here, or elsewhere in the Waterfront, will be clamped.

In Summer the swim start is at 06:00 and nobody will be allowed to start swimming after 06:10.  We need to clear the area by 07:00.

In Winter the swim start is at 14:00 and nobody will be allowed to start swimming after 14:10.  We need to clear the area by 15:00.

What to bring along:

  • ATC Multisport or a brightly coloured swimming cap (ATC cap compulsory for V&A Canal swim)
  • Goggles
  • Wetsuit (optional, but recommended)
  • Costume / tri-suit for under your wetsuit
  • Towel and change of clothes – (warm clothes are recommended to warm up after sea / canal swim but these must be left in your car).
  • Sunscreen.
  • Your sign in name or barcode card.
  • Your cloth or other type of face mask.
