2015 WOWSA Award Nomination[edit]

Chillswim Coniston by Chillswim
Chillswim Coniston is driving more and more people of all ages and abilities to significantly extend themselves in the open water. Held in Coniston in the Lake District of England, the challenging shore-to-shore 5.25-mile maxed out at 750 participants wearing the mandatory Swim Secure tow-float. A great linear layout with mile markers and four feed station boats, swimmers were treated to hydration, energy gels, jelly babies and bananas as sustenance where finish times ranged between 2-7 hours for swimmers with and without wetsuits. For its focus on and attention to swimmers from all walks of life and myriad goals, for its safety-focused, well-oiled production of a point-to-point swim, and for its attention to detail and delivery of another sold-out open water swimming extravaganza, the Chillswim Coniston is a worthy nominee for the 2015 World Open Water Swimming Offering of the Year.
