The University of Portsmouth is currently running a study investigating the lower water temperature limits for FINA sanctioned open water swim races.

Researchers are keen to hear from lean fast endurance trained swimmers as these people are very similar to the athletes who participate in the FINA races.

Consultation on designating Studland Bay a Marine Conservation Zone

1414497970-E359w-H.guttulatus-NGM-300

For a number of years, Dorset Wildlife Trust has been working hard to get Studland Bay designated as a Marine Conservation Zone. However the Government is hesitating and needs to see strong local support for the designation before it will agree to it.

In January 2015 there will be a public consultation giving everyone a chance to voice their support or concerns about designation. DWT is encouraging everyone who uses and loves Studland Bay to send in a personal and positive response to the consultation.
