Open Water

There are a number of opportunities for Open water swimming at Oxford. Every two years, Oxford and Cambridge battle it out in the Cross Channel Swimming Relay – often being some of the fastest teams to complete the crossing. Oxford swimmers also swim the Henley Classic race each year.

The Poseidon Club
The Oxford and Cambridge Open Water Swimming (and Extreme Sport) Club

The Poseidon Club is an active society that meet for an annual dinner and acts to support current students in both OUSC and CUSWPC in open water swimming events, providing essential support such as funding and mentoring particularly to the Channel swim teams.
