Seren, if you want to swim, I'll happily kayak next to you.  Not sure I could cope with how cold it must be by now!

I'll give it a go in a few weeks time. Neoprene hat etc should make it tolerable.

It sounds like I'll be spending most of the first quarter next year in Newport

Can anyone recommend a tri-club. I suspect the Hilton pool will get somewhat wearing.

NEWTS....based at newport and are really friendly.............newport tri club or something/.............only going a few years.....if they were west newport instead of east I would go and join them but a bit too far to travel for me........

Hi Cat5

As Seren says we're friendly (mostly) check us out. Run sessions on a Monday (track through the winter) and swim Tuesday Newport & Thursday at Bettws (just to the north of the city).  3 really good coaches. Also we're linked to Lliswerry Runners who have several run sessions throughout the week as well.

Seren I cant beleve you are still getting in the river - you're even madder than I thought
