Yes. Excellent swim yesterday.
Now just slightly concerned that Colin's channel attempt will
lead to land-fall at the Statue of Liberty, NYC! ;-)
PS I am up for joining people to make their catch-up swims
quorate. Weekday evenings best for me.

I reckon you were just confused. The Radcot section is one of the

Can anyone explain why I thought I was swimming in the wrong

Are there ancient lay lines around Radcot that cause a temporary
inversion in the Earth’s Magnetic Field or was I just confused.
Your help will be gratefully accepted.
I am missing swim six Buscot to Grafton so if anyone is up for a
catch please let me know ( I need a friend to point me in the

Another great swim today! I seem to have got a bit burned
despite the sunscreen! GPS track below. It’s a bit off course
to start with – probably because I forgot to turn it on until
just before we got in and it didn’t have a good lock.
