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.


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.


Inspire2Tri have now got the ow swim sessions set up for Rutland Water this year. I haven't been yet but my gf has and said it was a good set up.

I've been participating in some of the sports conditioning classes with Mary at I2Tri over the last months and if they are anything to go by then I'm sure that everything will be well organised.

Hi

Can anyone here please tell me if the ow swim sessions have starts at Bosworth in Leicestershire?

I looked on the 1485 tri club website but it wasn't clear.

Thanks

As far as I know it is the right time for it to start but think the temperature was too low either last week or the one before, seem to think somewhere on the forum it was stated at 11C in the water, can't remember if that's too low still? Surely is for me Wink

Tried the Active Water Sports Centre lake at Lydd Kent this week. Cost 5 changing rooms, toilets and showers, bags looked after. Temp 17 degrees

Lapped buoy course around 970m ish per lap (ish as read off my Garmin)

Very little weed, only a very slight taste of motor fuel from skiers.

Plenty of things to sight on to keep a straight line and or learn sighting.

Enjoyed the swim and will be back

Recommended

Open 5:30pm to dusk at moment check or phone for swim nights. I was there on a Tuesday.

West Reservoir in Hackney is up and running. Capital tri are organising races and events.

I did the 3k swim there last Sunday, but there were also 750 and 1500m options. The organisation was good and the people friendly.

750 loop seems a little long. It has a couple of big buoys to sight off, but mostly it's the football buoys. Apparently they're scheduled to have some larger buoys in future. Water's good weedwise but it's pretty green.

Next event is an aquathon on 11/08 with sprint and standard options.

I'm not affiliated with Captial Tri.

Yep, it's alright. 400 and 750 loops. Not weedy. Facilities are raw but it has what you need. You have to do a swim test first and it's a fiver a swim

Anyone use the Serpenine in Hyde Park?

I'm starting work nearby and info on websites is sketchy as to whether anything is being run currently (swimfortri.co.uk, serpentine.org.uk)

Do you know if this took off and will the sessions be happening again in 2014? Have done the BRAT tri a couple of times at that location and it's a nice swim.
