Re: Rhienschwimmen

Is today the official day?

Edit: Checked google. Yes it is. Then yes, very likely.

Re: Rhienschwimmen

Seeing as this is a special swimming event... is it just in Basel or anywhere in Switzerland along the Rhein?

I'm still working it out in my mind, but my current idea is to cycle down to the Mittlerebrucke and walk from there to Tinguely. Then float/swim down from there. Actually, I think we went even further up stream last year. I went with Biff, who I hope is going again this year.

Officially it starts at 6pm, but in reality it's a "from" time and I think I did it at around 7pm last year.

So ... meet under (well, near the first cafe, we're not trolls ...) the Mittlerebrucke at 6:30pm?

This one is just in Basel, but there are more in other parts of CH, maybe have to google a bit.

Re: Rhienschwimmen

OK-change of (my) plan. Meeting a friend at Wettsteinbrucke (grossbasel side) at 5:30, walking over bridge then to Tinguely and plan to be in the water at 6pm sharp.

Looking forward to picking up a medal for Team GB.

Damn Adrian, I waited for almost a hour at the Mittelerebrücke, told myself that you had gone ahead and went straight to the bottom of the river, after that I walked up to Tinguely and jumped in.

Re: Rhienschwimmen

Damn - sorry! You didn't post anything to say that my plan was OK, so when someone else asked me to go earlier, I just went (after posting here, too late it seems).

Did you get a medal? Last year I did it quite late and still got a medal, so hopefully they hadn't run out.

Re: Rhienschwimmen

No! Did not get a medal, by the time I realized that there was a finishing line I was already downstream.
