I heard via the OSS that there will be more open water swimming at Rutalnd Water this season i.e. not just race events.

Anglian Water put me on to inspire2tri who have been authorised to organise such swimming:

http://inspire2tri.com/programmes/open-water-swimming-2/open-water-swimming-events-in-rutland-water

Not sure yet if this will only be for coached sessions but the link above says more news is due soon.

I have no connection to inspire2tri but would welcome the opportunity to swim at Rutland Water.

Looking for somewhere in the Leamington/Warwick area.

I know about Market Bosworth and Ragley Hall but wondering whether there are any others in the area or any known spots (rivers, Draycote water, secret venues)?

Or if not, if there are a group who would look to do something?

Just spoke to someone at Ellerton Park in N Yorks, as I'm working in that area a few weeks from now. It seems I can basically turn up anytime for a swim for 3.50 Shocked

- am I missing something or is it as good as it seems?

Had first OW of the year at Manley near Chester last night. 11 degC, felt bloody freezing. After about 1km that was enough Shocked


Im going to try manley mere this week. Salthouse dock in liverpool has too much oil on the surface. Either from the water bus, or from burnt out ford escorts at the bottom.

Very Happy Well I went last Thurs and had a great swim. Bit rough and ready with no safety boats, but plenty of other swimmers so not an issue.
Not sure if I was going the wrong way around the course or not?
Confused

Bit further West but i went to Upton Warren just off Junction 5 of the M5 this weekend, good facilities. 4 to swim, 7-9am on Saturdays.

Also Top Barn Activity Centre about 15 Minutes further on in the Worcester area, again 4 and decent facilities. You can stand up anywhere in the lake at this which made it a good option for beginners or just less confident swimmers.

Hope this helps!

i've took part in a couple of the swims at Rutland Water with inspire2rti, the only way Anglia Water will let them use it to swim is if they treat it like a race and have marshals on the water for safety reasons. they're hoping now they've had a few sessions next year they'll be able to open it up for a regular early morning weekend swims.
