Managed 4 large laps last night, no idea of time as i didn't take my stop watch by my sighting technique seems to be improving slightly. Definitly need a pirate swim hat although there's alot of yellow ones at bosworth, just none with the pirate logo.

I swam 5 times in the sea at Bournemouth over the weekend, wearing my Pirate hat.  I don't think I've ever seen the sea so calm and it warmed up to 11 degrees so some of us even managed to break the 2 hour barrier

It was that pirate hat making it warm


At Thorpe again tomorrow having apparently not put off last week's 3 newbies by the cold.  Hoping for warmer  after so much sun and that one of the longer loops is finally open.

Will be in my pirate hat if anyone else is there

In the Blue - Have you tried Shepperton lake? 400m and 750m loops open all the time. Really nice down there. 

04/06/2013 at 20:39

Not tried Shepperton although I hear good things.  Thorpe works well for after work as I swim with colleagues, it's easy to get to from where we work and easy for everyone to get home.


Was a lovely swim tonight, warmer and  the 750 loop was open; you could even see the bottom in parts!  Funny how the sun brings out more people - wonder what they'll do if it's horrible on race day

Shepperton is nice, better showers at Thorpe (just), less weed at Shepperton, but Thorpe is the Daddy when the 1500 loop is open. Easier sighting at Thorpe too.

Maybe in July....

No weeds at the moment in Thorpe dusty or at least not on the bits that are open, I can't remember how far up the lake they were on the 1500 loop.

Anyone going to Bosworth Water Park tomorrow? I know Evil Pixie is going, just wondering if anyone else will be heading out there from the forum? It would be good to put faces to names

05/06/2013 at 16:55

I'm going tomorrow too, my first time

05/06/2013 at 16:57

Would like to try Bosworth some time - its not that far away. Rutland Water was certainly warm enough last night - first time in this year. It showed, as well. I'm sure the wetsuit shrunk over the winter!
