Any groups / individuals open water swimming in Zurich regularly?

Hi all - I know its sort of coming to the end of the summer, but just wondering (maybe even for next year!) does anyone know of any individuals or groups that swim regularly in any of the lakes in Zurich?

Would be very interested in finding some like minded individuals who would like to get some KMs done in the lake. Either open water swimmers, or triathletes etc.

Any ideas?

PS - also interested in any groups of masters / seniors that train in pools either! Tri or open water or masters clubs too for the winter!

Cheers

OK - to answer the 2nd half of my own question found this... list of Masters swimming clubs in Switzerland & their contact details:

I've just moved over from the UK and do triathlon so was planning on doing a bit of lake swimming. Swimming used to be my best discipline but sort of lost motivation recently in favour of cycling.

Might be interested in meeting up, depends how well my motivation works. What sort of sets would you be looking to do?

Hi there - sets / distance totally open to suggestions. I used to be a fairly serious open water swimmer. Not in terms of pace / speed, but longer ultra-endurance events. But I haven't really swam at all in 18+ months.

Will PM you so we don't bore the rest of the forum with swim talk

Anyone else maybe into the idea? For me the lake is swimmable for at least another month or two, especially if people feel like donning wetsuits!
