Langstreckenschwimmen Groß Wariner See

1,6 km über Binnensee


Im Jahre 1985 nahmen fünf aktive Schwimmer den Weg von 4,5 km um die Insel des Groß Wariner Sees auf sich. Begleitet von nur einem Ruderboot schafften sie die Strecke ohne Probleme. Das erste Groß Wariner See Schwimmen war absolviert.

Im nächsten Jahr wurde die Strecke auf einen Rundkurs von 1600m gekürzt. Damit konnte das potentielle Starterfeld erweitert werden. Inden folgenden Jahren nahmen immer mehr Einheimische am Schwimmen teil, welches durch die Rettungsschwimmer der DLRG Warin organisiert und abgesichert wird. Durch die Verbreitung über die DLRG und durch die Integrierung in die Allrounder- Wertung der jetzt insgesamt fünf DLRG-Langstreckenschwimmen im Land Mecklenburg- Vorpommern zählten wir in den letzten Jahren auch immer mehr auswärtige Starter.

Das Langstreckenschwimmen ist einer der Höhepunkt des Jahres im Sport- und Kulturleben der Stadt Warin. Spätestens beim abendlichen Tanz und Lagerfeuer am See kann jeder Schwimmer die abwechslungsreiche Natur und die herrliche Lage des Sees entdecken und bleibende Eindrücke mit nach Hause nehmen.

Ich freue ich mich schon darauf, Sie bei unserem nächsten Langstreckenschwimmen willkommen zu heißen und würde Sie gern nach dem Schwimmen im Ziel begrüßen.

Important New


If you have taken out full membership have your membership number at hand before entering the swim.


If you are not a full member and intend to enter more  than one swim take out full membership before entering the swim.


If you only wish to enter one swim in the season, Advance Membership Single Swim membership will be added to the swim fee (£18).


Age Categories
Veteran  (Aged 45 years old or above on the day of the Championship).


Full member entry fee = £43 – £18 = £25

Advance Membership Single Swim Day = £43


From 9.30am report to the Swim Secretary at the Bluebird Cafe – Swimmers and boat crews MUST register.


10.30am at the Bluebird Cafe near the boating centre (Lakeside Road) prior to the swim.


12:00 noon from Oxen House Bay near the Lay-by opposite to Peel Isle.



The swim is a straight course swim, the finish being 3.25miles away at the Ruskin Pier adjacent to the Blue Bird Cafe.


Conditions of Entry
1. For this swim all swimmers must provide their own safety cover. No swimmers will be allowed to participate in this event if they have not provided their own support. It’s the entrant’s responsibility to provide the safety cover. You can enter only if you detail your support crew. Coniston Boating centre has 7 rowing boats for hire. If you wish to be accompanied by a rowing boat you must provide at least 2 crew members and hire the boat directly from the boating centre.   http://www.conistonboatingcentre.co.uk/boathire


2. This swim is restricted to full senior or Advance Membership Single Swim of the BLDSA meeting the age criteria.


3. Each support boat or kayak must fly a Flag Alpha while escorting it’s swimmer, failure to do so will result in disqualification. All escort craft must carry the following equipment – plastic survival bag, energy drink, whistle (and rowing boats must carry a buoyancy aid such as an inflated ring).


4. It is the responsibility of the swimmer to ensure that their safety cover is at the briefing in good time. If a swimmer’s safety cover is not at the briefing the swimmer will not be allowed to start the race. It is also the responsibility of the swimmer to ensure that their crew members are able to maintain a course within 2-3 metres of the swimmer at all times. If the swimmer is not kept within this distance he or she will be instructed to leave the water. There are many other lake users on Coniston and all need to be confident that the swimmer is next to the boat, especially in breaking water. If this is your first escorted swim, go out and practise with your crew!


5. BLDSA Rules apply to this swim, i.e. only traditional swimming costumes/ trunks (must not extend beyond the end of the shoulder onto the upper arm and lower than the crotch onto the upper leg) will be permitted (No wetsuits or body suits. Please see the BLDSA website for a more details. Caps – Breaststroke swimmers must wear a PINK swimming cap. All other swimmers can wear any colour cap other than WHITE or PINK. Note – only one cap may be worn, it must have no insulating properties.


6. That you will declare that if you enter the swim whilst pregnant, you will inform the swim secretary at the earliest possible opportunity, and will provide him/her with a letter from a doctor or midwife confirming your suitability to enter the event. You understand that entry may be refused to pregnant swimmers at the discretion of the swim secretary, following a risk assessment.


Energy Drinks
It is advisable that you take an Energy Drink during your swim. This can be handed to your crew who will carry it down the course and hand it to you during the swim. A reasonable feed strategy to be applied during your swim is to stop every hour. If your swim is several hours long and the water temperature is low you will need to take on energy during the swim. We want you to finish the swim not the swim to finish you!


Time limit
There will be a time limit of 4 hours for this swim.


Non UK Residents
Non UK Residents must provide evidence of membership of their governing body or individual insurance for Open Water Swimming.
