"Thanks so much to Vigour Events for an amazing well run event on Saturday. I will certainly be planning my future trips back to Scotland around some of your events."
"Once again, great event, well organized with the buses, well communicated pre event and well manned for safety issues"
'Thanks for a great event "
'I am just writing to say an enormous thank you for such a fantastic event yesterday! My father and I both took part and were delighted to complete the swim.
Many thanks again and we are really looking forward to our next vigour event!"
'I just wanted to say a great thank you for all of your volunteers and organisation yesterday. What a remarkable swim. Looking up at that beautiful, looming structure from that majestic, impressive water was an incredible experience. Please pass on a huge thanks to the kayakers in particular who did such a great and patient job of herding those of us who found ourselves landing at various, unintended points on the other side. A great swim for the soul, no doubt. Everyone should try it."
"What an amazing day we all had yesterday. We really appreciate everything you and your team did for the swimmers (and us spectators)."
"I did the Forth swim yesterday and it was brutal but an amazing experience. Thanks so much for all the organisation. You seem to have a fantastic team."
"Could you please pass on my grateful thanks to all the volunteers and staff of Vigour events who helped make today’s event possible .
But especially to the 2 kayakers who helped me when stuck in the tide under the rail bridge. The bright green and the red/yellow kayaks and paddlers gave me a very welcome tow. Thanks to them I finished under my own steam under the big black arch.
Despite taking twice as long as anticipated I’m glad to have “surfed” the Forth and will be back next year!
Many thanks again"
"I enjoyed it. Totally different from the swims I have done up to now. This one required a ‘serious’ respect for the environment and the challenge of getting to the other side. After getting a few hundred metres into the swim I stopped, looked around, took in the view. I soon realised that I could not do this all the way across and I got my head down and started to put some effort into moving myself through the after to N. Queensferry. Very tired by the time I got there.
Today I feel a sense of achievement. Contentment. Thanks, a great day. "
"Thank you Team Vigour. It was a great day for all. So well organised, and brillant to see all the swimmers on their swim. The piper was a lovely touch .The Finnish was great and all the crowd were so welcoming cheering the swimmers in."
"Loved it! Pretty challenging at times, but that's exactly why it's such a great sense of achievement to complete it. Huge thanks to everyone who helped out "
"Amazing, but also very tough experience. Brilliant atmosphere and such great support from all the safety boats, and supporters. Thank you to everyone involved. Must aim more left from the start next time!"
" It's a totally iconic swim and the atmosphere from start to finish is amazing! The piper is the icing on the cake! Can't wait to do it all again next year ! 🤩🏊♂️🤗"
"I loved it and have to say the support kayakers & rescue boat were fantastic."
"Thanks to everyone who helped out. Excellent challenge . It was tough, challenges aren't meant to be easy. I'm now going to sit on a couch all day to nurse my sorry self back to some sort of normality. Cheers to everyone. 😁:'
"Thank you for such a unique event. Thoroughly enjoyed this challenging swim. Congratulations to the Vigour crew on a very well organised event. As a visitor to the area I was given plenty of information to allow a successful crossing. I will definitely return to swim it again, despite the cold water...👍"
