It is the Big Jump on Sunday July 11th. The Big Jump is a Europe-wide event
in which we are urged to reclaim our rivers for swimming. Across Europe,
people jump in the river at the same time..
Let's meet at Walton Well Road car park in Oxford
at 2.30pm for a 3pm jump in the Isis at Port Meadow. Bring food and drink to
share or for yourself and we can make it a riverside picnic.
We've identified a selection of jumping points next to each other for those
that want to make a big splash and those who want to make a gentle wave.
If anyone else would like to join this jump, please read the following:
Simple caution: swimming, like crossing the road and going hiking, can be
dangerous. Everyone attending an OSS Big Jump must be a member of the OSS
(sign up on the website) and have agreed to the terms and conditions of our
Swim Responsibility Statement. This basically means that you understand that
there are risks to swimming that include death and you are responsible for
managing your own. With the freedom swimmers have to swim outdoors, comes
the responsibility to look after ourselves and not place that burden,
practically or legally, on anyone else, including the OSS and all the
volunteers who work for it. All OSS social swims such as the Big Jump are
peer swims, with no water safety.
