NEKOWSA Swim the Kingdom Schedule for 2015
We are very pleased to announce our schedule of swims in 2015 in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont, the Eastern Townships of Quebec and Scotland!!! Registration will open on September 15th, 2014
We have moved Kingdom Swim back to where it started, the last weekend in July. And we are very excited to include Loch Ness in the list of legendary lakes on this schedule. The Swimmer Scouts' Search for a plesiosaur like lake creature expands, thanks to Sarah Thomas, Elaine Kornbau Howley and Craig Lenning.

HI Phil - has a requirement qualifying swim been determined for the Border Buster? Hoping to get it done this season, if the weather holds out...
Yes, you should have at least a 10 mile open water swim under your belt by July 1, 2015.
SOOOOOO excited to come back for this!
Oooohhh. Loch Ness!
Have you been in touch with the BLDSA re ratification / observers for the Loch Ness swim?
Also, while over visiting the UK have you thought about trying to find Bownessie (Nessie's younger cousin) in Windermere?
Zoe: We've arranged for the ships to escort us. That's about it, so far.
I think this one swim will be a monster. So, I doubt that any of these three Swimmer Scouts will be looking for a second swim while they are in Scotland. But please tell me more about Windermere and Bownessie. - Fil
