5 May 2021 (weekly onwards) – Open Water Swimming (North Walsham)

We will be restarting the regular TriHarman-Norfolk open water swims at the Mike Thurston Centre, North Walsham each Wednesday from 5th May.

As always these club sessions can only take place with the support of our committee members and other club volunteers on the water to keep our swimmers safe. First we must ensure we have our volunteers in place, so please let me know the dates which you may be available to support so I can create a rota. The more volunteers we get the fewer times individuals will be needed to help. If you have not helped before, we will ensure you are supported while you learn, you do not need any particular skills. We always aim to allow volunteers to get a swim on their ‘working’ days if we can.

We will need to continue the 2020 Covid-19 changes to the operation, to allow us to comply with guidelines. However as the restrictions are relaxed we will seek to return to our pre-Covid operation. This means 2021 is likely to be members only swimming again.

5 June 2021 – Club Group Ride (Bodham)

Our next group bike ride will be 09.30 on Saturday 5th June, starting from the Village Hall car park in Bodham. These rides are about 30 miles in two hours, on the local lanes. You will need a road bike, helmet and clothes appropriate for the weather conditions. The format is tried and tested and nobody gets left behind.

If you plan to join us please let us know.

19 June 2021 – Holkham Swim

On Saturday the 19th June we have the opportunity to swim in Holkham lake, an ideal opportunity for those taking part in the Outlaw event in July but also a nice open water swim in a fantastic location. A big thank you to Ben Hunter-Watts for getting access for our club, this lake is not normally open for swimming and the swim is strictly for club members only.

We will meet at the Victoria Hotel car park for 5.30pm, then go to the lakeside for a 5.45pm start. We have limited numbers for the swim so booking is essential. After the swim we will meet up at The Victoria for drinks in the courtyard, again numbers are limited by Covid restrictions to 30 so again booking is essential.

Please let us know by email or to T on Facebook messenger if you would like to take part, first come first served.
