On Saturday 14th June 2014 Anthony, Simon, David, Dave and Xoomie Alumni Steve all gathered for this years Great North Swim in the wonderful surrounds of the English Lake District.
Here Dave reflects upon his swim and his charity fundraising efforts:
Just wanted to say a thank you for your donation to the Nation Autistic Society as part of my Great North Swim.
As you may have seen on Facebook I competed the swim in 37min and 15secs which isn’t too bad considering that I found myself swimming to the shore on a couple of occasions. I am also relived to tell you I did not encounter any large pike or other sports fish. There were a variety of fists, elbows and feet to deal with.
The water was lovely and “warm” at 17oC, which seems quite pleasant until I remember the swimming pool is normally about 25oC.
