Maybe the organisers had the agreement of Ragley's owner to have access to the lake at any time? In which case, it wouldn't have been the tri club's place to stop them...


Can't see it being a make or break thing for the OW swimming (he said hopefully)

Saw this on the EVT website

"Open water sessions at Ragley Hall have been cancelled until further notice  Sorry for this disappointing news Sara"

Hope they get it sorted soon, its a great spot

Hi All, 

Joanna from Raceways/The Avenger here. 

Just to confirm that the cancellations of open water swimming sessions at Ragley Hall is not due to the actions of any members of the Raceways team. The swim sessions have been cancelled due to issues between Aztec (water/swim support) and Evesham Vale Triathletes. 

Hope you all enjoyed the race and will be back again next year

Apropos of nothing, the idea of needing lifeguards at an OW swim session where you can mostly stand up is pretty comical...and it's not easy to sink in a wetsuit.

I'd quite happily swim anywhere as long as I had a buddy to keep an eye.

Shame there's been a fall-out; hopefully it can be resolved soon.

Triathlon is going the way that all sports go as they mature; down the road of excessive regulation. It's a crying shame.
