This year all swimmers will receive a reusable drinks cup instead of a medal when they finish the swim. We’ve been thinking about this for a while as it’s dificult to get British made eco-friendly medals. We loved the Afanc design on the medals but they came in individual tiny plastic bags (grr) and were made in China. We hope you’ll love the cups and collect them year after year. They’ll also be super useful as you can go straight to the tea/coffee/not chocolate and cakes!

Hi swimmers. We’re hoping that the 2019 Llangorse Big Swim will take place on Saturday 7th September. We hope to confirm the date and open the online entry in January. See you in 2019!
We’ve sent out the competitor information pack to you all this afternoon by email. Please just get in touch if you’ve got any questions. See you on the 15th – Nicola and the Big Swim volunteers
We’re really pleased to have had so many swimmers, water lovers and outdoor junkies contact us during the past few weeks. This year we’re delighted to have swimming specialists Selkie joining us with a tent full of their new products and loads of sale items. Photojournalism student Amy Gibbons will also be featuring many of our swimmers in her project focusing on lake swimmers. There will be the normal supply of unlimited tea, coffee, biscuits and cake for the swimmers plus something very special is happening on the lake. We can’t tell you any more but you won’t be able to miss it. See you all on September 15th. Nicola and the Big Swim team……
We’re delighted that the British Heart Foundation have approved our application for a defibrillator for Llangorse Sailing Club. The Big Swim will be funding the extra £600 needed from the money raised at this year’s event and the sailing club will be providing a cabinet. The defib will be on the outside of the clubhouse so that it can be used by anybody at the lake. We hope it will be in place within the next few weeks.
