Swam in an eddy on foxton. First run of the 2012 and 5 min on the water and I was sans boat. Self rescued and then rope assisted to the road side.
I have to second a new forum for swims. It's too cumbersome to keep up with a 150 post thread and it keeps the trash talk nice and encapsulated on a per swim basis.
On the river, I can abandon who I am and what I've done. However brief it lasts, while on the river I am nothing important and everything insignificant. I am flotsam, and happy to be so.
