Open Water Swimming

Gary M has made great progress in possibly getting us all access to open water swimming at Covenham reservoir.  The water-skiing, diving and yacht club seem to be happy for us to fit in around the times they use the water, so the initial outlook is positive.  Our wishes are currently being pursued by a member of the water sports association who is going to approach Anglian Water to hopefully get the green light.  What we need to do now is to gather the level of interest from club members, so please consider whether you would look to use this venue.  The site has showers & changing facilities; a track running around the perimeter, and ample parking, so would be a great location to add to the dock swims available through the Water Rats. The facilities at Covenham could make for a great Aquathlon venue to add to the existing Duathlon events.  Obviously, the more members that come forward with interest the more this will strengthen our case.  Interested? Then please email Gary Martin ASAP at or give him a ring on 07748202591
