Her Spirit Winter Swim Challenge Disclaimer

Her Spirit is not able to assume legal responsibility to its members or others. While we are always keen to share our passion for outdoor swimming, all swimmers must be solely responsible for making their own assessment as to the risks involved in any particular swim.

Her Spirit itself has no control or influence over those who arrange “Her Spirit social swims”, or the locations written about or featured in newsletters, the website or on HerSpirit.co.uk which we support. The decision to participate in any swim must therefore be taken individually, and swimmers must not rely (in whole or in part) on views or information provided by Her Spirit and/or its members. If you are in any doubt about the safety of a swim or your ability to complete it, you should not take part.

Swimming outdoors heightens the risk of serious injury or harm. The risks of outdoor swimming include (but are not limited to) hypothermia, drowning, sickness from polluted water, injury from wildlife, other swimmers or debris in the water. The ‘safety’ of locations varies with the weather, the abilities and knowledge of the swimmer and over time – rainfall can dramatically change the safety profile of a swim spot. More information on understanding water is available in the Swimming section of the Her Spirit App.
