The opportunity to experience an open water adventure in a weekend by swimming across some of Europe's most beautiful lakes and walking on the fells in-between.

I'm going to have to improve me swimming first, but I'm up for it!

they sell personal 'torpedoes' at gadget shop - you know the ones, a propeller in a tube with handles on the side... drag you along nicely... unfortunately at florida i suspect the rescue divers on the bottom would grass you up

Has anyone told dr. Nic about this yet..?

What ho!

I know the 2 guys who run Swim Trek and they are very decent chaps - channel swimers both. These trips have been getting rave reviews and I definitely plan on going on one next year - whether it's one of their Greek Island ones or something in the UK (probably the latter)

But yes, I hear they are highly recommended, and run by real open water swimmers, for swimmers.

Well is it to be this or Hull 24 hour track?
I have decided to do an Ironman next year, what with the London training and the fact that I cycled 75 miles the other Sunday with no ill effects I think I should get on with it before I am too old.
