We take the safety of our guests seriously. For all open water swimming events we will provide support kayaks and support boats, with medical staff and ambulances in attendance. The festival will follow all recommendations and safety guidelines from the national governing bodies on hosting open water events.

Read the Swimmers Safety Brief.

All swimmers should consider their health and fitness to participate before entering BestFest. These should also be reviewed regularly during training and before BEST Fest week itself. All entrants will be required to sign a health declaration as part of the on-site registration process prior to taking part in any BEST Fest event. The form available via this link covers the health factors we feel are important to ensure your healthy and safe participation.
