Safety stoppage

From Openwaterpedia
There were two safety stoppages during Ross Edgley's unprecedented Great British Swim

noun - A safety stoppage or swim stoppage is a period of time when a stage swim is halted due to safety considerations due to threatening marine life or risky water or weather conditions such as tropical storms or oncoming typhoons.


Ross Edgley's Great British Swim had two safety stoppages due to Storm Callum and Storm Ali.


Both terms coined by Steven Munatones in February 2018 for explanation of necessary postponements of The Swim, a transpacific assisted stage swim by Ben Lecomte.
