With lockdown rules changing across Europe and triathletes keen to get back into open-water, Norseman have today released a simple ‘swim safety code’, designed to keep outdoor swimmers safe.

Formed of a checklist similar to the ‘mountain code’ used in Norway to keep people safe in the mountains, the swim code includes advice on choosing an appropriate place to swim, why a swim buddy is important and how to approach water of different temperatures.

To launch the swim code, 220 Triathlon‘s Editor Helen Webster interviewed Norseman Safety Director Jorgen Melau and HUUB Design CEO Dean Jackson about open-water swimming, safety, gear and their plans for summer.
