On 31 August 2019, during a small window of opportunity in deteriorating weather, 20 “worthies” from throughout Argyll swam the 1000 metres across Loch Awe between the Taychreggan and the Portsonachan Hotels; indeed, most swam both ways. This was the first such swim since 7 locals did it in 2004 and was staged as LACRC’s major fund raiser for 2019. In all £1400 was raised to have a new set of light weight oars made for the Club. Such was the success of this event that it is hoped to repeat it again in August 2020.
