I am swimming the 800m event on Day 1.  Do I need to register before swimming?
If you are swimming the 800m event on Day 1 you do not need to register first. Registration will be at the Old Woolstore Hotel on Day 1 only commencing at 12 noon and then at the Hobart Aquatic Centre from Day 2.

Will there be an open water National Championship event in Hobart?
Unfortunately the MSA open water swimming rules do not currently allow for events at water temperature below 18C, and that is about as warm as it gets mid-summer at most Tasmanian open water swimming locations, so we could not be certain of complying with the temperature rule. The good news is that MSWA is going to host a National Championship open water event in March 2023. Visit the MSWA website for details.
