On leaving the beach (after the swim) please give priority to the swimmers - they are likely to be wet, cold and wearing limited clothing. It is therefore vital that they get dry and changed as soon as possible
In the event of an emergency please respond to instructions provided via the PA system
Due to the tide and high volume of people wishing to watch the swim it may be necessary to restrict access to the beach via the slipway. This decision will be purely made on safety grounds
During the 2024 NYDS you will be around and in close proximity to many thousands of people. If at the time of the event you have been either in contact with any persons suffering from covid or be suffering from any covid symptoms yourself, you are to stay away from the NYDS. Failure to do so may result in you inadvertently spreading the virus.
