Forty six swimmers turned out yesterday for the first of the Highland Open Water Swims. So far we've all raised more than £1400 for the Children with Cancer Charity. So that's all good then.
The next swim is in fact a whole wheeled of swimming. The main swim on Saturday 22nd April when we'll swim 1.4km across Loch Sunart to the Resipole Campsite. Swimmers will be ferried across to the start point by safety RIB.
Later in the day, if there's enough interest, we'll have a second open water swim in the area Liz and I usually go. That one will be without safety cover. For those who want to make a whole weekend of it, then on Sunday 23rd we'll have a 'family friendly' swim in a lovely, sheltered sandy bay at Ardtoe.
These are 'warm ups' for the big swim of the three on 6th May when we swim 2.4km across the Sound of Mull shipping channel. That will be quite a challenge for everyone.
