Dear member of the Aquamasters Family,
Due to the COVID-19 outbreak all over the world, which has been declared as a pandemic by
the World Health Organization, we have to postpone the next International Arena
Aquamasters Swimming Championships (which we planned to hold in Göcek between May
1 st and 3 rd , 2020; and in Marmaris between May 15 th and 19 th , 2020) to Autumn 2020.
This decision –in parallel with the measures taken by the Republic of Turkey, Ministry of
Youth and Sports, Turkish Swimming Federation, and the Governorship of Muğla– is an
outcome of discussions in our board of directors in dialogue with our partners. On March
20 th , 2020, European Swimming League (LEN) postponed 2020 European Aquatics
Championships (which was to be held in May in Budapest), and International Olympic
Committee postponed “2020 Tokyo Summer Olympics”.
Our priority is your health, and the measures for public activities have to be abided. The new
dates of our championships below are determined by our board of directors in collaboration
with all official institutions, organizations, and our partners. Your payments and registrations
are valid for the new dates:
The 12 th International Arena Aquamasters Open Water Swimming Championship, Marmaris,
October 9 th -11 th , 2020
The 13 th International Arena Aquamasters Open Water Swimming Championship, Göcek,
October 16 th -18 th , 2020
Updated reglements will be available on our website www.aquamasters.org and on our social
media accounts soon.
We sincerely wish to overcome such difficult times altogether, and meet again in healthy days fullof sports soon.
With best regards,
Aquamasters Board of Directors
*Our swimmers who have registered for Marmaris Short Course Swimming Championship (May
15 th -17 th , 2020) will soon be informed by a separate message.
