Combine swimming and plane spotting with Prospect Hospice event

The third running of Prospect Hospice’s Bowmoor Lake swim will take place this year on 18 July, the same weekend as the nearby Royal International Air Tattoo at RAF Fairford, which means swimmers will be able to watch the aircraft flyby from the water.

The swim takes place at Bowmoor Sailing Lake, just outside Lechlade, and participants are able to make use of the changing facilities and showers. Distances range from 500m to 3.8km.
“Spectators and supporters are more than welcome to come along and refreshments are available to purchase on the day,” says Genevieve Arney of Prospect Hospice. “Lots of people bring picnics and barbeques and stay after the swim to watch the planes.”

I created Outdoor Swimmer in 2011 (initially as H2Open Magazine) as an outlet for my passion for swimming outdoors. I've been a swimmer and outdoor swimmer for as long as I remember. Swimming has made a huge difference to my life and I want to share its joys and benefits with as many people as possible. I am also the author of Swim Wild & Free: A Practical Guide to Swimming Outdoors 365 a Year and I provide one-to-one support to swimmers through Swim Mentoring.
