The annual informal 10km swim for East Dorset Open Water Swimming Club members is set for Sunday 7 Sept.
There will be a staggered start and the favourable tide means the slower swimmers will set off first around 7am from Sandbanks Beach, near the Lifeguards Station (note NOT our usual Shore Road venue) with everyone aiming to finish at Fishermans Walk (Ali’s beach hut) for refreshments around 11am.
Every swimmer MUST have a beach walker. No beach walker no swim!
The beach walker will carry your clothes and any water or snacks that you need during the swim and a small plate of nibbles to share with all at the end of the swim.
The Club will provide water and a few nibbles but it would be nice if everyone brought a small plate to add to the feast. We hope to have soup and hot drinks available.
There will be absolutely no transport for taking swimmers property from the start to the end of the swim!
If anyone fancies walking but doesn’t have a swimmer, we may be able to find a swimmer for you.
Further details will follow, possibly quite close to the end of August due to Club swimmers taking part in two separate Channel Relay swims. As this is close to the swim date, please start getting organised now.
