Open Water Swimming 2019

Fri, 07/26/2019 - 15:05

Welcome to all new swimmers who have joined us this year, great to see more and more new swimmers every week.

External changing rooms have also been opened and we hope you are all enjoying the added…

The highlight of my sporting calendar was the Thames Ultra - a one day event with a choice of two distances - 45km challenge starting at Bray or the 75km endurance challenge starting…
