    13e Brugse Zwemdoortocht

    by Dabs Updated Sep 26, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    One of the benefits of having a husband who enjoys competitive open water swimming is that open water swimming is a world wide sport and I get to take cool trips to indulge his hobby-London, Windsor in both England and Canada, Annecy, Cork, Dublin, San Francisco and now Brugge.

    This event was held on September 3, 2011, organized into two categories, the more serious swimmers went in the 1st waves, I think it may have been the end of the season and some sort of Belgian championship. They let my husband join the "swimjoggers" in the 2nd wave, both with several subcategories-men, boys, girls, women and breaststroke. Even the "swimjoggers" were competitive, the route for both was 1000 meters. The entry fee was a mere 5€, they gave everyone a medal for finishing the race and they gave my husband a nice towel with scenes from a prior year's race.

    They had a bus running from the finish line to the starting point although the route was walkable

    Equipment: Wetsuits were allowed but not mandatory, the water temperature in the canal is pretty cold, or at least that was what was reported to me as I'm not silly enough to swim in a canal.

    Maybe there are some Dutch VT members who recognise these cyclists, if so please send me a note.
