Hi Gang,


If any of you are planning to come along and aren’t on the Facebook Event could you please let me know as I promised the pub I would firm up the numbers for lunch this week.

Ice Maidens and Ice Men of the Isis*,


It’s time to start thawing out!  By the time 25th March comes about the icy Winter waters should have been replaced by an (almost) tropical Spring flow and even the Neoprene Ninja should be looking forward to jumping in for the 1500m swim.


In an attempt to confuse and disorient everyone our Glorious Leaders have delegated the organization of Swim #21 to me and, as such, we will have no tardiness or faffing around thank you very much!!!  We will meet in the car park of the Kings Arms at Sandford-on-Thames at 11am (sharp) on Sunday 25th March:

We will then walk upstream to the entry point at the little beach here:

and then swim back to the lock next to the pub.  There seem to be various possible routes but the possibility of getting lost just adds to the excitement!


The car park costs £1 for 3 hours which will be refunded by the pub when we eat.  If time is looking tight we can top up with another pound before going into the pub but I’m told that you can’t get a refund if you put in £2 at the start.  It’s likely that this swim is part of a swim from Michael Worthington’s book but I don’t have a copy so I don’t know!


See you all there!!

* Although, strictly speaking, now we are downstream of Iffley Lock I believe it is just the plain old Thames.
