Friendly relaxed event

This was my first open water swim. Would recommend for other new starters.

Brilliant race - will get incredibly popular

The water in Millwall Docks was surprisingly fresh and clear. The 1 Mile race course was easily navigated and the whole event extremely well organised. Coming back next year. I want to be sub 30.
