New relay option

New for 2022 we have a two person relay option.

Change at the half way feed to share this experience with a swimmer friend.

Our recommendation is that you either have a support team to drive you to the exchange point or use the car park at Ferry Nab which will enable you to take the ferry over the lake and walk the short distance to the swap over point. You must be able to provide your own paddler to support your swim, which can also be changed at the half way feed.

2021

Congratulations to all the swimmers and paddlers that made this year such a great success.

It was the fastest year in terms of the fastest swimmer completing the course (George Taplin from Maidenhead blasted through the water in a time of 3 hours 35minutes 56 seconds) and the collective times of all the swimmers, everyone was home and dry within the ten hour time limit.

Photographs from the day are viewable over on our Facebook page and we look forward to hearing from the swimmers regarding their sponsorship totals.

An update on the hoody order, those are in and will be posted once they arrive.

We also have the opportunity to place an order for custom slates if you would like one please download the order and email this by the 27th September

What happened in 2020?

An unforgettable year!

2020 gave us challenges that we had to work extremely hard to overcome. New restrictions on social distancing added to our list of requirements. The planning and preparation that went in to the 2020 event was its biggest yet. With the whole team coming together and ensuring we had all basis covered when it came to you safety. Registration was adapted, feed stations were planned and adapted, extraction points changed and confirmed. Venues were given the confidence that we would all be able to abide by social distancing rules. Motor boat and medical teams were fully prepared to deal with any incident safely.

The swimmers and paddlers worked to ensure they were at their best in terms of fitness following the difficult training conditions in the summer.

Then building up to event day the weather chose to be less favourable. Every opportunity was given for the swim to take place, but with the winds not calming the decision was to cancel the event. What followed was a range of emotions, proud that we had got the event this far, gutted that the weather was the only obstacle. In its 7 year history the Lake had always been kind. This year just wasn’t to be.

Thank you to all the team, swimmers and paddlers who supported the event, emails of support and respect post decision were much appreciated. To the venues for their support and continued support.

We will be back next year stronger than ever, ready for the adventures.
