  • yep .. was 16 last night as well ... lovely .. apart from that bit above the van that was still chuffing cold .

  • image it still freaks me out going over the small boat image

     

    where is the van?

  • ah perhaps it is  the boat ?   Swimming anticlockwise then between buoys 4 and 1 .. about halfway between buoy 4 and the aluminium boat thats normally moored there . Had assumed it was the transit as there is one of those sunk in there as well ,   .. will have to stop and take a propper look next time.

    There is a snooker table over towards buoy 3 apparently ...random.

    No idea where you guys are swimming but it sounds like some council estate canal...give me Heron lake anyday!!

  • its all stuff thats been deliberatelty scuttled to give the divers something to amuse themselves down there. There is also a trapeze ??

  • I have in the last week passed my swim assessment at Leybourne and swam there again later in the week. However, I was the only one in the water as I got there at opening time so it felt a little eerie!

    I am hoping to swim regularly on a saturday morning if there is anyone else who does 'the loop' just so as not be on my own.



    Would my swim assessment at Leybourne transfer to Holborough Lakes to also be able to swim there?



    Cheers ????
  • Hi Lisa, unfortunately you cannot transfer the swim assessment, I tried the other day.

    Leybourne is usually quite busy, but having said that the lake is large so it can feel a bit lonely.

    I'm planning on going there Tuesday if you are around?

  • Im off to the lake now........ I wish we had some sunny sunshine image

     

  • anyone swimming at leybourne on fri (15th) morning??
