This weekend the tides were almost the same as they'll be on the day of the swim, so three of us did a recce.
The video of the swim is below. Oh and if you're a kayaker please come - we need support kayakers!
The tide will be coming in so we'll swim with it and hopefully any prevailing wind around into Glenuig Bay.
It's a short swim to start the programme, but probably quite chilly, especially in the bay where a river reaches the sea. I thought the swim was over too quickly as I appeared to turn into Glenuig Bay, yet I was less than half-way, so don't be fooled.
There's a small cliff on the shore-side as you enter the bay and a large flat rock underneath where the water is very shallow, so swing wide and you'll be in more swim-able waters.
Where we'll have a talk by the astonishing swimmer Colleen Blair, recently voted number 4 in "2019 World's 50 Most Adventurous Open Water Women". I filmed her successful swim across The Minch last year for The Adventure Show, a world first.
