East Dorset Open Water Club Winter 2009 training

Club membership has grown to over 50 in 2009 from our newly established summer base at Shore Road. We offered additional open water swims on Sundays throughout most of the summer period and were delighted to be awarded Swim 21 Foundation status by the ASA. The Club has enjoyed a very sucessful open water season, with some exceptional swims at local, regional and national level.

Club members have expressed a desire to continue to meet and swim on a regular monthly basis. The agreed swims will be at Ringwood Health & Leisure on the first Saturday of each month from 8 to 9am, commencing 3 October 2009. A number of our members already swim in these intermediate / advanced triathlete sessions. The cost is £4.40 for the session if you are not a Centre member*.

Some members will also be swimming informally in the sea through the winter. if you are interested, please contact Ali Budynkiewicz (alibudynkiewicz@talk21.com). These will not be club sessions and not covered by any ASA insurance

The 2009 Christmas swim will be held on Sunday 6 December 2009 at Noon followed by a Chinese eat all you buffet lunch (£10). Please let Ali know if you are keen to come – 30 did last year and it was a lot of fun!
