The 2017 Jack Thomas Straits Race was cancelled.

The reason is that there were just 8 entries.
Given the amount of goodwill, costs of the boat cover from Plas Menai, the Conway Center, and the RNLI plus other associated costs incurred to make the swim happen, so few entries do not make the event viable.
