Hello all, 

The August full moon is on Tuesday 24th. And I'm sure there is nowhere you'd rather be than in the Thames at Dorchester. Sunset is 19:40 moonrise is 20:05.

Let's meet here


at 7.45 to be in as the moon rises. We'll then swim towards the moon which will get fuller as we go. By the time we get out, it should be pretty high and full. The swim will either be around a mile, or two thirds of a mile - tbc. If you just want a little splash - there is a beach where you can do that. There should be time for a lunar pint afterwards....

Please be aware that the moon's visibility is dependent on the weather so it may well be pretty dark. If that doesn't sound appealing, the splash might work for you, or it may be best to stay dry! The site has a remote feel and is quite sheltered....

Usual terms and conditions apply!
