Feedback from last years event:

"Thanks for the great event at Loch Eck. Was my first attempt at open water swimming, & will be back next year hopefully increasing my distance to the 5k."


"Thanks to you and all involved with today's Event at Loch Eck. Great organisation and company. Well done to all. Looking forward to next year by which time I should have recovered!!!"


"Thank you so much for organising such a fabulous event at the Loch Eck Swim Fest at the weekend!  I loved it - it was well worth the trip down from Aberdeen."


"An excellent and challenging event. Safety cover was second to none - very reassuring in the difficult weather conditions."


"Had a great, if challenging, time at my first open water swim event. Found it way tougher than I had expected. However, the reassurance and helpful words of support and encouragement from the safety boat crew, helped me to relax and eventually begin to enjoy my swim. Can't wait for next years season to begin and hope to end it with another trip to Loch Eck and a slightly faster time than this year. Thanks to the organisers for a wonderful, if cold, day."

The ‘English Channel In Manchester’ Relay Swim 2014, Salford Quays, Great Britain
Aug 2 @ 5:00 am – 7:00 am

The 'English Channel In Manchester' Relay Swim

Salford Quays | 23/08/13


Here was a challenge to whet the appetite of any long distance swimmers that get excited by urban night swimming in big, bad weather!!

A small but perfectly formed event of five relay teams recruited (or press ganged!) six swimmers who each swam 2km and repeat it three times for good measure. This equates to 22miles, the length of the English Channel. Easy peasy! The beauty of swimming the English Channel in Manchester instead of the real thing (whic we luv) is the saving of over £3,000, no jellyfish, no errant cross channel ferries or messy sewage discharges from Panamanian oil tankers!

The evening started well with all teams setting a cracking pace. Spirits remained high until dampened somewhat by torrential downpours that meant it was dryer swimming than relaxing. Sheltered under the Uswim gazebos or in the local marketing suite our intrepid teams gritted their teeth and ploughed on regardless escorted by their heroic support kayaks.

Just over 9hours later local heroes Trafford Masters broke the water speed record in an incredible time of 9:17 dragging along the old warrior Dave Randall (!) Our two lovable Liverpudlian teams came in second and third separated by a mere 4minutes with the Floaters floating home in a very respectable 13hours, forty mins. Bravo J

Commiserations to Las Barracudas who bit off more than they could chew on the night but which goes to show ³it ain¹t half tough in the Channel!²
