We are three lovely ladies who enjoy a challenge, share smiles and aim to make a positive impact on life. Continuing our swim training at the quarry throughout the winter both suited and in skins at 6 degrees Celsius, we thought we should step out of our comfort zone once again. Since initiating the 'swoosh' we have learnt much:

  • phorrrrrr is an understatement when expressing water temperature in January
  • mad activities make for exhilaration, a joy to be alive and a wish to include folk through instantaneous laughter.
  • 6km is a long way - 240 lengths of the pool - 9.5 laps of the quarry - more than half a swim marathon!!!

Event details

The Bantham Swoosh

A Massive BIG thank you to all who supported in whatever way to our Swoosh for Macmillan the other month. We completed the 6km swim in a rather surprising 2hrs!  Your support for the Lovely Ladies Laughter Club swimming feats is so much appreciated.

The Swoosh is a world class 6km swim in a sandy bottomed estuary in Devon.  The swim culminates in a “swoosh” as the ebbing tide is funnelled through a narrow section of river, speeding you along over the riverbed at up to four times your usual swimming speed.
