Hi again swimmers !

After Monday's fantastic first edition of this activity, let me offer it again on Wednesday late afternoon.

Goal is to swim down river a portion of the river Rhone, approximately 1200m long, between Pont Sous-Terre and a spot located around 300m upstream for Pont Butin.

It doesn't require any particular athletic skills, You just need to be a good swimmer with a little spirit for adventure.

You need:
- swim wear,
- sandals that can go into water
- a towel (optional due to heat, one dries up quite quickly in the hot afternoon)
- if You have, a waterproof bag where You can store Your values and clothes. I have one bag where I can store wallet and phones of 3-4 people additionally to my own stuff, not more.
- optional: a small floating device i You like

This activity is safe and practiced by a lot of people everyday lately
Still You take part to it at Your own responsibility and risk.

We will meet in front of Ethno bar located at Rue des Deux Ponts 2, at 18h40 PM, and then proceed into the water after leaving the stuff that we don't need (clothes, bags, etc....) close to the bridge.

Swimming will take about 15 minutes max, walking back the the starting point about 30 minutes. So altogether lets calculate an hour max. Water temperature is nice at the moment around 22 C.

After completion of the swim and walk back, a drink is a nice option :-)

Hoping to see You on Wednesday :-)
