We have just about recovered from our weekend which included 2 events ! We started off with our first ever night swim which was great fun followed by our Bardowie Loch Swim Festival which included circumference swims for the first time.
The night swim kicked off at 11pm just as darkness was falling , swimmers could enter 500m, 750m or a 1k swim. There was a real sense of excitement amongst swimmers as they were getting ready for their swim in the dark. The See Swim and Vigour Visibility bags lit up ' like glow worms' someone comment so the swimmers were clearly visible at all time.
The event was a great success and everyone had a fun night. Have a look at our website page here for more photos and results of the swim.
Watch this space for another Night Swim coming this season !!!!!
Bardowie Loch Swim Festival
We were lucky with the weather as it had been forecast to be wet and windy but both the wind and rain held off until after all the swimmers were finished.
The swimmers completing the 1k and 2k swim in the loop format started the event off first, followed by the swimmers completing the full circumference swims. This was the first the circumference swims had been introduced and were popular among the swimmers looking for a challenge.
Speaking of challenges there was a group of hearty swimmers who joined us for both the Night Swim and the Swim Festival the next day.
Have a look at our website page here for more photos and results of the swim.
We would also like to take this opportunity to thank the volunteers who helped out at the events, it wouldn't be possible without you.
The swim camp will be based in the Alicante area with an exciting range of coves and coastlines to explore over the course of a week.
This trip is a great opportunity to swim with like minded individuals while exploring new waters and coastlines. There will be a new swim location each day with swim support provided. This trip is suited for swimmers who can comfortably swim at least 5km in one swim and who have a good understanding of open water swimming.
