In theory, I would love to join one or both of these swims. However, having just received details of my other commitments that weekend (conferences etc.), the timings are a little tricky. It is probably best for you and others to make plans that suit you and then, if i can escape early / nip out and join you, I will!
- On Friday: I will probably not be free until 8 / 8:30pm.
- On Sunday: I am free between Noon and 3:30pm (so a quick dip may work - and you'll have to have a drink at the Vicky Arms on my behalf).
See those of you swimming on Sunday,

I still plan to swim on Friday 16th September in the evening in the Thames at Port Meadow and on Sunday 18th September in the afternoon in the Cherwell from the Victoria Arms at Marston Ferry Road down to Parsons Pleasure.
>From the map, it seems that the latter swim is 2.5 to 3 kilometres but I am awaiting an answer about that.
Friday At the moment, my plan is to meet at the car park near Port Meadow at about 6:30pm (negotiable), walk across to the river and swim upstream until we get bored. Possibility of visit to pub with pies afterwards.
Sunday I am supposed to be having lunch in College but could be persuaded out of that. However, I am tied up until at least 12:30pm and then i have to fetch my car from park and ride. I then plan to leave my car near Linacre College and cycle up to the Vicky Arms. My car can be used to ferry us back to the pub after the swim so long as there are no more than five of us.

Perhaps we could have a cup of tea or something stronger at the Vicky Arms at the end.
