I'm up for Thorpe as it is my lake of choice unless it happens to be a Sunday morning when Mytchett wins as it takes minutes to get there I never did get to Taplow last year but will make the effort if for nothing else the night swims.
I've just spotted the comment about declined cards, mine was too to start with guessing that we hit it when it was too busy processing other payments.
I'm hoping about 3 hours depending on current, I seem to remember Siggy had a nice helping current last year I'm just debating which distance to do at Outlaw on the Saturday, it might have to be 5 really.
Was it you asking about Guildford swims at some point FD? If so you probably aren't too far from me and I'll be lake swimming when they open if you want to join some. My usual lake buddy is off on a 9 month sabbatical in south America, lucky him!
