Sopping Buds of May,
Despite the continued deluge, the weekend's sunny weather means the river
is looking possible again.

Abingdon Lock to Culham Lock. This will be an approximately 4.15km swim -
#34 in Michael Worthington's **I* ♥* the Thames* .
Details below (please let me know by email about lunch - see below).
*We will still have to be vigilant. The river is fast-flowing and we will
have to be sensible about safety. Please be prepared to stay in groups.
Look out for the confirmation e-mail on Friday.
We'll meet here in the free car park at Culham at 10:30am on Saturday 19th
