Defibrillator

We’re delighted that the British Heart Foundation have approved our application for a defibrillator for Llangorse Sailing Club.  The Big Swim will be funding the extra £600 needed from the money raised at this year’s event and the sailing club will be providing a cabinet.  The defib will be on the outside of the clubhouse so that it can be used by anybody at the lake.  We hope it will be in place within the next few weeks.

Thank you swimmers and marshals

Thank you to everybody who swam, marshaled and supported today. We’ve already made a list of ways that we can improve for next year including staggering the waves more so the 1.5 swimmers don’t have such a long wait, more buouys, more cake (gosh you were all hungry) and a private changing tent. We are taking orders for t-shirts at £10 each. Please email us with the size you’d like and we’ll send you details of how to pay. Please let us know by Wednesday

We are able to accept limited entries on the day, please email us in advance – llangorsetri@hotmail.co.uk       Happy Swimming!
