Post code didn't lead precisely to the place we had to be. Remedy: put up signage to the Rowing Club. Enough toilets and much better than the horrible portaloo one normally has to use. Registration quick. Glad there was a place to leave bag. Tagging the bags&swimmers with wristbands as is done at Dock2Dock would be good. Pre-swim I was a bit lost as to where to be. Pre-swim briefing good. Well-organised, good pre-event email comms, water clean, felt safe, felt challenged by the cold (18 degrees) and the breeze on the 1 200m return stretch (skins swimmer), which made it all the more rewarding when I finished my 2.5km swim. Thank you for the cake and cola. It felt stingy to pay £3.50 for a medal at the finish. I know medals are probably built into entry fees at other events, but it is nice to get a medal. Compared to Dock2Dock: both are good venues, clean water, well organised, plenty of safety crew. Dock2Dock medals and a gift for all finishers. Swim Long had showers: what a treat! And it is a good venue for family and friends as there is a viewing deck and places along the course where they can watch the swimmers. I would like to do this event or one like it, organised by VOTWO, again.

Great event for swimming ! very well organised and went all super smoothly and on time. The lake is great to swim in w the lanes to help go straight :) For organisers: someone asked me to move my chip from inside my wetsuit to outside, where I thought it would fall. It did fall… which was frustrating to get accurate time

Great venue. Maybe atmosphere had been used up on morning triathlons, as was zero for the swimmers. No recognition of finishing, struggled to know where finish line was! Having to pre-purchace a finishers medal (additional to entry fee) sums it up. Good cake made some amends.

Great race, no problems. Didn’t need any info I didn’t have, well marked course with plenty of marshals. A little busy as 2.5 and 3.8k set off at the start, but once spread out, it was fine, and there was plenty of room all through. Really friendly when I got out, and lovely medal!
