Dart 10K - OSS Event

A 10km swim ending at Dittisham

We are attending the Dart 10K event on the weekend of the 5th/6th September - we will have our range of wetsuits to try on as well as some handy bits and pieces from our new range - goggles, neoprene gloves, swim caps and socks. 

The event is organised by the Outdoor Swimming Society which had a big input into our lotic wetsuit design - 

"It's a fantastic swim journey from the town of Totnes down the Dart estuary to Dittisham (dit-sum to locals). The course is marked not by inflatable buoys but by landmarks - the Cormorant Tree, the white rock, Sharpham boat house, Bow Creek. It's supported by volunteers from the local and swimming community who make it special, and is bookended by social swims put on by local wild swim groups."

Come along and enjoy the atmosphere on Dittisham village green, with local food suppliers and a festival feel, then venture down to the coast to see the swimmers getting out. Check out the Outdoor Swimming Society Site for all the information.
