On 11th November something very special is going to happen in Derwentwater, called: SWIM TO REMEMBER. At 11am 111 of us (mad swimmers!) are going to wade into the lake and swim 1km around the island to commemorate exactly 100 years since the end of WW1. All the swimmers will be wearing special poppy swim caps; so we're hoping to get amazing and very poignant drone/other photos of the event (and get some of the local media there). As we swim a bugler will play and we'll be say...ing some prayers out of respect to the injured/fallen. The whole event is part of the WE REMEMBER THEM 1918-2018 campaign to raise money for the Royal British Legion and HorseBack UK

It's being organised by the wonderful Swim on the Wild Side. We are very grateful to them - and everyone else who have volunteered to bring this special event to life (including the lovely ferry people who are delaying their launch so we can get into the water!).

But... WE NEED A FEW MORE SAFETY KAYAKERS! Could you help us - or do you know someone who could?! Please send me a DM if you can and share this post.

And if you'd like to join us for the swim please keep an eye on our website: www.werememberthem.org.uk

Thank you.

WOW! Strongman swimming is a new one on me! Anyone at COSSS Masters fancy this one night at Ponds? The tree might get in the way though

Well that was a first at Kingston ASC last weekend... A DANCER wanting photos in amongst all the swimmers lining up for their splash shots. Good for her - she knew what she wanted and nothing was going to stop her getting her photos, swim club or no swim club!

Fab shoots this weekend with 2017 Scottish Swimming club of the year City of Glasgow Swim Team and local club Kingston ASC. Long time since I've done swim pics - really enjoyed it! I think the swimmers had a good time as well... Judging by the amount of water being thrown around!

Great work from the Aqualina Synchronised Swimming Club duet yesterday. Asked them to model underwater with dancers from ballet schools just to see what happens - synchro meets ballet!
