Gemma and Adam from the Masters Squad took part in the Mill2Mill swim in the River Stour, starting at Dedham and ending 2.4km later at Flatford Mill.
It was a very interesting and scenic open water event (particularly if you like looking at pondweed!) which took the swimmers under bridges, through weeds, through stretches which were so shallow we had to wade and past poor holiday makers trying to row along the river.
Adam swam the distance in a very impressive 31 minutes, the 8th fastest male, whilst Gemma swam the distance in 34 minutes, coming in as 4th female. It’s a very laid back event and both look forward to doing it again next year.
