Message from the President of RLSS UK – Ian Hutchings

Hi Athletes, Coaches, Managers, Spectators, Officials, Staff at RLSS UK Headquarters and Toll Cross swimming pool,

A tough decision was made today regarding the cancellation of RLSS UK’s National Speed Lifesaving event. I know there will be some very disappointed people in the UK right now. Some will be relieved. I feel for everyone.

A lot of work and preparation has been put into the build-up to our event by everyone! But very, very occasionally things don’t go our way.

We have all seen the weather forecast.  We are seeing reports of the conditions in Glasgow as well as the rest of the country.

I wish everyone a safe time wherever you are in the UK.

On a lighter note, I am continuing to prepare my athletes for the next event.
