[Swim Trek 2014] Fantastic day, really well organised, loved it!!

Alison Ruscoe
Just wanted to say how brilliant the [2014] Seahorse race was yesterday. The sea, wind and weather were kind but they were the magic fairy dust on top of some fabulous organisation and good racing.

I know these things take a massive amount of time and effort from the organisers and your care and expertise didn't go unnoticed.

I will be back as many times as is necessary for me to win the oldest person trophy!

I would like to thank you for making Sunday's [2014 Seahorse] Swim a most enjoyable and well organised event. Your volunteers were helpful and friendly making the Registration and other communication a pleasure.

This was my first sea swim and although I was one of the last to exit I thoroughly enjoyed the experience and hope to return next year.

Thank you very much for a fantastically organised and fun [2014 Seahorse] Swim. It was my first race in the sea and I couldn't have picked a better debut venue. I will be back next year.

[Seahorse Swim 2014] You set yourselves a high standard because the previous year was so good and, yet, today was even better. More swimmers, better trophies and what a marvellous atmosphere - smiling swimmers and great banter too before the start.

It's such a refreshing change from the sharply commercial mass start swims yet nothing is lost in terms of the professionalism and your attention to detail and safety. That you give generous donations to the Seahorse Trust and RLSS adds to the feelgood factor.

One adult class swimmer achieved her first OW sans-wetsuit swim today. She is hopping all the way home and one more very inspired lady is off on her OW career!

What a brilliant day out [Seahorse Swim 2014]! Swimmers loved it and the family left on the beach too! A really friendly and well organised event. Thank you!

We had a lovely day [Seahorse Swim 2014] thank you. It was a smooth stress free registration, the stewards were friendly and helpful and the location stunning. Thanks for ordering the good weather too we'll definitely be back next year

This 10km [swim] is a fantastic event, maybe it's the fact that it is small and very social. It is a shame that there are not enough days in the week for me to be a more permanent member of the club. I will of course spread the word among the swimmers in Ringwood and hope you get a few signings. I look forward to the next event I can take part in.

Thank you very much for letting us come down to join the Swimtrek - it was good to meet the EDOWSC folk and we all enjoyed ourselves a lot!

I would like to give my thanks to EDOWSC volunteers, for all that you did with assisting at the Brownsea Island 2013 swim. It is certainly appreciated, not only by me, but by everyone in RLSS Poole Lifeguard and all the swimmers. This year's swim has to go down as one of the best ever, not only from the weather perspective, but it has a great deal to do with your interaction with the swimmers, making their time with us a special one.
