Swimming events attract hundreds

HUNDREDS of people took part in two swims in Henley at the weekend.

One was a new, fun event for locals while the other was a 14k endurance race from Henley Bridge to Marlow Bridge featuring international competitors.

Both were part of a series of summer events organised by Henley Swim, the company that started the Henley Classic, a swim which takes place on the royal regatta course before the rowing each year.

More than 170 people took part in the first Club to Pub Swim on Saturday evening.

Competitors had to swim 1.5km from Henley Rowing Club in Wargrave Road to the Angel on the Bridge pub via a buoy at Marsh Lock.
