New open water swimming festival

A NEW open water swimming festival will take place in Henley this summer.

It will comprise a series of events for all ages in the River Thames and a “village” with food vendors, a bar and live music.

The festival on Sunday July 14 has been organised by the Henley Swim in collaboration with Outdoor Swimmer magazine.

It will incorporate the Henley Mile swim, which has been running annually since 2011, attracting thousands of swimmers of all ages and abilities.

The events will take place on the Henley Royal Regatta course and include a mile and half-mile race, suits versus skins and a 200m junior event.

There will also be a four-mile event for swimmers looking for a greater challenge.
