Hello, swimmer friends! In August 2015, Elaine Howley, Craig Lenning and I are headed to Scotland with Phil White leading the way. Our purpose? Swimming the length of Loch Ness. We're looking for a fourth person to join us. We have all the boats and arrangements made, all you'd need to do is say you're in, pay the deposit, and then join the fun. While we'd prefer that none of us swim with wetsuits, if that's the only thing holding you back from joining the expedition, we're all open to having our fourth person suited up. We promise only to tease you a little. :-)

If this sounds like fun, send any of us a message and we'll be happy to share some more specifics about dates, costs, etc.

Any takers?!

    It's only a stupid question if you don't ask it, so I'll ask it: All four of you are swimming the entire length, or you're doing a relay?

    I hate assuming... ;)

    We're all just carbon, water, starlight, oxygen and dreams

    Oh! I thought they were setting up their own thing.

    They are! It's not part of the Aspire relay weekend.

    They are each swimming the length no wetsuits!

    Yes- to clarify, we're each swimming our own. We'll have our own support boats, so no need to swim together/pace together. That means the fourth person can be any speed/any ability- so long as you think you can make the distance and handle the cold. So far, we have two people who seem interested, so if you're also interested, let me know!

    Might be interested depending on cost/dates etc. Sent @ssthomas a message via the forum but not 100% sure that these messages get broadcasted so thought it best to post something as well.
  • Hi chaps,
    I would be very interested indeed in doing this challenge! I completed windermere a year back, and am dying to get back on a huge swim.

    Hi everyone! We tried, unsuccessfully, to find another person last fall. We had quite a bit of interest, but then the group escorting us said that their fourth boat was now committed elsewhere, so we were forced to go on with just the original three. It's going to be one heck of an adventure.

    @phodgeszoho: For some reason I didn't see this until now! December was a long time ago. SO SORRY for not responding!!!!!! I'm not sure how I missed it. :-/

    @alexander: Maybe you can round up a few people to help share costs for this year or next!
