The Blue Lagooners

Anyone else heard of or joined this club? It has just been set up and is based in Womersley (southern most part of north yorkshire) at a disused quarry which is now a blue lagoon (hence the name). Open water swims on saturday and sunday mornings followed by group rides. £30 to join the club and £3 per swim, I think. The website is not running yet but it is on facebook. I just thought I would post this info in case it is local for anyone, I don't think the open day was advertised all that well, I only heard about it when I got chatting to a bloke at the swimming pool. If anyone fancy's going along pm me and we can meet up.

    I am a member of adwick tri club but live in hensall (so not far away) a few member of our club went to the open day , it is set up by a guy from wakefield tri club and left under a cloud from what I understand.

    The water good but a little expensive as we have open water swimming for free and only have to pay when we pool swim
