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."
