Dear all, 

Unfortunately I won't be around to join in the half marathon swim this 
weekend in chilly and rainy conditions.  I will be sunning myself in the 
blue skies and heatwave that is currently moving towards the Isle of Wight in time for meteor shower watching on Saturday night (oh yes it is...).

Hope you all have fun and hope to catch up with this one soon, maybe in two halves, prior to the next one.   

Enjoy, cold floaters and cake eaters. 

Claire x

Ps. see some of you in the mud somewhere in essex sometime soon.

Fellow floaters,


It’s time to put down those Easter eggs and pick up the pace, this swim
will be a little longer(~4.5km) than recent ones but there will be options to
get out early. Access to the river is a little tricky around here so we'll park
near the finish and shuttle to the start.


Let’s meet at 10:30 at the large car park just south east of Abingdon
Bridge http://g.co/maps/cuxtq , the car
park is not free so bring some change, we should get away with paying for 3
hours. Faffing will commence at 10:30 but it will end at 11:00 when we will all
be rubbered up and take 2/3/4 cars to the start at Radley boat house, there
isn't space for many cars here. We'll leave our dry clothes at Abingdon Bridge
car park.


Then it’s the easy bit, we'll swim downstream with the Thames path on
our right with a pit stop(or early exit) at 2.5km just after the railway
bridge. Then we'll aim to swim on to Abingdon lock, there looks like another
early get out option at http://g.co/maps/hmfr4
. There are fairly obvious paths from these get out points back to the Abingdon
Bridge car park but you'll need to walk them in your swimming kit.


We'll return by car for lunch at the Bowyers Arms next to Radley station
to use their free car park and hospitality. Please email me or accept the
invitation in facebook before Sunday morning if you are coming so that we have
an idea of numbers.
