Henley Mile Swim - Suits

Race Date: Sunday, 15/07/2018
Race Distance: Swim - 1 Mile

Charles adds: A downstream mile along the Henley Regatta course finishing just next to Temple Island. A hot sunny day for swimming in a wetsuit, it was a relief to get into the river, although that was still warm at 22.7 degrees Celsius. Flow seemed lower compared to previous years, although there was still a slight drift noticeable at the start line. Kate was taking part in the wetsuit category, while I was doing my first swim of the day in the Henley Suits vs Skins challenge.
