Hi all,

Hoping for some pointers...

Swimming was my favourite fitness and hobby from the age of three until 2014, when work took over. I have missed it greatly and want to get into the open water and combine it with a life long goal, a massive endurance event for charity.

I have the base plan for this, but could do with a decent chat with someone who'd be willing to help :)

Thanks in advance
