Weekly Update 20 August 2021

Hi Everyone,

Kona might be cancelled this year but the Club relay race is still on tomorrow morning! The weather might not be up to Big Island, but all Club members are very welcome to support and spectate, and to catch up at our BYO picnic. As our first post Covid social event this definitely marks a bit of a watershed, so it would be great to see as many of you there as possible – Dorchester Sailing Club, from 7:30 to 13:30.

With the days sadly getting shorter, and with very limited sign ups, we are stopping the Tuesday evening open water swim session for the season now. With increasing demand for pool sessions but still very limited pool availability, please can all Club members only sign up for one pool swim per week, unless there’s an on the day vacancy. Expect a tap on the shoulder from the pool sign ups monitoring team if you do sign up, you have been warned!

We still have some volunteering opportunities both at Outlaw Bowood on 12 Sept, Blenheim over the weekend of 11/12 Sept and Oxford Half Marathon on 19 Sept. Look out for further information, and sign ups on the website. Blenheim and Oxford Half in particular are offering discounted race entries and other incentives.

Finally the very best of luck to Club members Andy, Holly Ann and Neil who have all made it to race internationally in Ironman Vichy this weekend. Looking forward to the race reports to add to the already excellent growing list on the new website section!

Any questions, as ever just ping me.
