This will be the first ever Open Water Swim in the Historic Town of Windsor. Famous for Windsor Castle and other sporting events, this truly is the epicentre of the sporting world.

It is possible that we will be able to get a boat to ferry participants up river, if the river flow is deemed strong, but it currently is static and perfect for any type of swimmer to take part in.
