Fancy a week in the sun?
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.
EDOWSC may not not have had many swimmers in the championships held at Weymouth on 29 Jun 2014 following the 3.8km Seahorse Swim a week earlier but those attending put in good performances.

Over the last few years the previous competition had to be cancelled due to a lack of swimmers. Now that it is “under new management” and in a revised format let’s get behind it and make it a success.
Overall winners, West Dorset Warriors scored 30 points; Seagulls came second with 27 and equal third were Bere Regis Orcas and East Dorset Open Water Swimming Club with 8 points. Although BRO and EDOWSC only had one swimmer representing them, they each won their particular swim categories.
