Winter Swimming Update – November
The Cold Water Swimming Information sessions have been well attended with swimmers finding them helpful. All swimmers particularly those new to cold water swimming are strongly urged to attend these sessions
The next session is on Saturday 7th December 9.00 am start. No charge
The majority of winter swimmers are wearing wetsuits, gloves, boots and neoprene hats whilst a few are keeping with skin swimming. Skin swimmers are generally those swimmers who have swum throughout the summer and have experienced the temperatures dropping gradually.
We are very pleased with the water, it has now regained its gin clear quality, recent rainwater has not affected quality or clarity. The temperature this morning is 5.5 degrees Celsius. We now have two thermometers suspended at 45 cm, we take the lowest reading which is generally at the clubhouse end of the lake.
Saturday swimmer numbers vary between 15–25, which is an encouraging start. Please note the start time is 10.00 and will finish at 11.30
We are now running a midweek swim, generally on a Thursday – Start time 10 am, booking is essential there will be a maximum of 10 swimmers only. Please phone the Clubhouse on 01386 871035 (there is an answer phone) or email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a place.
Please note there is a swim on Boxing Day and New Years Day – booking essential.
