10km Swim on Sunday 8 September 2013

southbourne-2We are starting planning for our annual 10km swim which this year will revert back to the original course from Sandbanks (not Shore Road!) to Southbourne, finishing by Beach chalet 1168 at Fisherman’s Walk. We will again be using a staggered start, with the slower swimmers going in the water at 7am. and the speedsters starting at 8am. This way, swimmers should all arrive at Southbourne within around half an hour of each other.

The swim is open to both wetsuit and non-wetsuit swimmers. Swimmers MUST PROVIDE THEIR OWN BEACH WALKER – no beach walker, no swim this year. Please note swim organisers will not be responsibe for swimmer’s baggage, so please make your own arrangements for baggage transport.

As an alternative, Ali has agreed to be available to receive any excess baggage at her beach hut between 2 pm and 4 pm on Saturday 7 September. Beach walkers will carry your change of clothes, water bottle etc. Please contact Ali (alibudynkiewicz@talk21.com) if you wish to take her up on this kind offer.

There will be an American Supper style post swim picnic afterwards with hot and cold drinks plus soup provided, but please bring some finger picking food (sausage rolls, quiches, crisps, nuts, cake etc). If you bring this to the start of the swim, it will be transported to Southbourne.

Please let Bob Holman know by Sunday 1 September 2013 if you would like to take part in what is always a challenging but fun event or volunteer to help on the day.

If you have any queries, please contact Bob on bobdiholman@btinternet.com
