“Brilliant weekend… thank you so much Mike and Sarah.” Jenny Landreth

“Really enjoyable weekend on the Dorset coast organised by Mike and Sarah. Lovely swims inc a 3.8k race and a delightful trip to Durdle Door. Super relaxed atmosphere and a lovely group of people. Couldn’t recommend it more.” Jack Travers

“I had a brilliant weekend down in Dorset with a lovely group of swimmers. Mike and Sarah made everyone feel welcome, and relaxed about the Sunday morning 3.8km (or was it really 4?!) swim. Good pointers in the acclimatisation swim and pre-race, well-organised weekend with great company!” Lisa Colley
