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 for refreshments around 11am.
The calendar is regularly updated – please check back for new listings and when provided, events on British Swimming calendar * (with contact details of officials organiser).
The club meets at Shore Road in Poole (just east of Sandbanks) on Tuesdays 6.00 pm for a 6.15 pm swim. The first swim of the 2014 season for Club members will be on 15 April. Naturally the decision to swim is subject to weather and sea conditions. Contact Gerry Griffin for further details. Sunday swims for Club members who are experienced open water swimmers recommence on 4 May 2014 (same time and place).
Please note initial taster sessions are only available on the first Tuesday of each month (commencing May to September). If bad weather prevents this on the first Tuesday, it will be on the following Tuesday.
