Mill to Mill Swim, Dedham, Essex, Gret Britain

first off, this isn't a race.

In fact it's not even an event.

It's a picnic at Flatford Mill in the heart of idyllic Constable Country. The only difference is that to get there you have to swim from Dedham Mill 2.3km away.

But, after saying it's not a race - There is a starter and an official timer and support kayaks and a record to beat from last year (32 Minutes 01 seconds by Tom Ames), and oh yes a trophy to win. In fact there are two, one for gents and one for ladies.

Because of the space involved in the river and the fact we are actually trying to do some good, and not wreck the place, there has to be a limit of the first 150 who apply.
