Following on from last year’s successful event, it was decided by a MATCC member to run this again but on the longest day of the year, a Wednesday. It was held in and around Loch Coille-Bharr on the way to Achnamara. Arriving early I sat in what I thought was the correct car park only to find that as time went on no one else was joining me!  Luckily, a couple of other people had the wrong place too but we eventually reached the correct destination.

The format was run/swim/run/swim/run ending up back at the designated parking area. It was a lovely evening with calm conditions making for a good event and well organised with marshals and kayakers to keep us right. The evening finished with soup and rolls, but any prolonged socialising was cut short by the appearance of 1000s of midges and the 12 or so participants were well and truly outnumbered.
