End of 2013 Season Swim and Lunch

Nov 9th, 2013 | By
End of Season Swim 2013

Our annual end of season swim and lunch took place on Sunday 3 November 2013 with 11 swimmers braving the cooling waters at Shore Road for an excellent swim to Sandbanks and back.

Three brave souls (Chris, Hannah and Mark) swam non-wetsuit which was most impressive and just maybe something to do with a certain channel relay attempt next year!

We then moved on to the magnificent Harbour View restaurant at the RLNI headquarters for our lunch.

We are starting planning for our annual 10km swim which this year will revert back to the original course from Sandbanks (not Shore Road!) to Southbourne, finishing by Beach chalet 1168 at Fisherman’s Walk.

We will again be using a staggered start, with the slower swimmers going in the water at 7am. and the speedsters starting at 8am. This way, swimmers should all arrive at Southbourne within around half an hour of each other.
