2020 at Stubbers

In line with new Social Distancing guidelines we are going to have to change the way things work at Stubbers. To smooth registration we need you to book in advance at a time slot of your choice. Please use the BLUE book fitness sessions button below to make your booking.
*** If you can not attend your session, please cancel your booking giving the system 24 hours notice so someone else can take your place. 
This will help keep queues down and smooth out the flow of people. Please observe the 2m distancing as you approach registration.
Please do not turn up if you have NOT booked a place. You will be refused entry. 

Please queue, book in and then continue onto the grassy area by the beach to get changed and enter the water. 

You can still swim until the end of the session ie book to swim at 7:00am you can exit at 8:30am, book to swim at 7:30am and you can exit at 9:00am. Your choice. Arrive at 6:30am and you can start your swim at 7:30am, up to you. This is just to help spread out registration.

Sadly there will be no refreshments until further guidance suggests it is safe to do so.

Changing rooms will not be available.

Please use the hand gel on exiting the water and report your name manually to the member of staff on the beach

Get changed on the grassy area as this will provide the space you need.

The wooden decking area should be kept clear for registration only.

If you need basic first aid please come to registration. Any other emergencies while in the water will be dealt with by the kayaks and lifeguards as normal who will be equipped with PPE for all your safety.

Please adhere to social distancing to keep all of the SFT family safe at this time.
