Somehow, no matter what place I pick, the hubby always seem to find some kind of insane swimming related activity and this trip was no exception. On our way back from Euromeet in Macedonia, we stopped by London for a couple of nights and he found a swim race in Windsor in the Thames River. 2011 was the 2nd year for the event, there were 950m, 1.9km & 3.8km distances. Unfortunately the weather was quite chilly and they started the race early so all I got to see was the finish

Equipment: You'd be crazy not to wear a wetsuit in the Thames

Address: Barry Lane, Windsor
