End of Season Update

Well done to everyone who braved the sea on the last Tuesday session of 2008.

We swam the annual handicap race, but slightly adapted because of the conditions – and the gloom!

Most of you will know that we were not able to rent a hut for the winter season at Branksome – and actually just as well as there is going to be a lot of earth moving equipment and pipe laying, so the access and water quality for swimming may not be very good.

Therefore, there will no regular weekly sunday swims. Instead, Ali will be arranging random monthly swims from her hut at Fishermans Walk.

We will start again more regularly in March, ready for the official May start of the 2009 season.

We will be planning to rent a hut for May at Branksome and are looking at funding with Poole Sports Development Council, so will keep you informed.

And a quick reminder, please let Ali know if you are able to come to the Xmas swim and lunch on 7 December. We are just about full, but can probably negotiate another few places if you let Ali know soon.
