Relay team for SwimBritain at Blenheim Palace

East Dorset Open Water Swimming Club has won a free team entry to British Gas SwimBritain 1000 at Blenheim Palace’s Great Lake on 7 Sep 2014, enabling us to take on swimmers from around the country in a chip timed challenge – each team member swims 1000m (4 legs of 250m).

Wetsuits are compulsory for this open water swim.

Friends and family will also be able to follow the live action on big screens with live streaming of results so they can track your progress throughout the event. Team results will also be posted online after the event.

Join open water Olympic Silver medalist and double World Champion Keri-anne Payne at Blenheim Palace and you may also get the opportunity to meet and swim with some of Britain’s top swimming stars.

Whilst the event clashes with our 10k club swim from Sandbanks to Southbourne, we do hope 4 clubs members will be keen to take up the invitation.

Any Club members interested should first contact John via our website. For further information visit the SwimBritain site and watch video from last year’s event.
