It has been a summer like no other in the United States. The 2015 Waikiki Roughwater Swim, the 2015 RCP Tiburon Mile, and the 2015 Big Shoulders were all cancelled.

Now add the 2015 Escape from Lewes Open Water Classic, scheduled on September 27th, to the mix of major races on this summer’s American open water swimming calendar that were cancelled due to Mother Nature.

Stephen Del Monte and his team of DelMoSports announced the following to all the Escapers:

We regret to announce the Inaugural Escape from Lewes Open Water Classic has been cancelled due to potentially hazardous swimming and small safety craft conditions resulting from an offshore low pressure system. This decision was made in conjunction with numerous water safety authorities involved in the event. Ultimately, it is simply too dangerous and we will not compromise the safety of our participants nor the safety of our support services.

That said, each participant may expect a DelMoSports care package with your long-sleeved Escape From Lewes tech tee, finisher medal, swim cap, and FINIS swim cords. You will automatically receive a comp entry to the Escape from Lewes Open Water Swim Classic in 2016.

Thank you for your support and understanding

Rumor has it that the 2016 Escape from Lewes Open Water Swim Classic will be a truly special and spectacular 1-mile and 3-mile event. Stay tuned.
