Bremont Watch Company is pleased to announce it will be timing partner for the 2014 Henley Classic. The inaugural swim took place back in 2004 when event organisers, Tom Kean and Jeremy Laming, decided their backs had finally had enough of rowing and that it might be nice to swim the Henley Regatta course. To do this without disrupting the rowing community, dawn was decided as the optimum time of day to do it, and Jeremy’s rowing club (Upper Thames) was nominated as the best place to meet.
Henley Swim Events is passionate about creating unique open water swimming events. Having first run the Henley Classic in 2004, there are now 4 events; The Bridge to Bridge, the Henley Mile and the Club to Pub. Henley Swim Co-founders Jeremy Laming and Tom Kean are delighted to be working with Henley based business Bremont this year which marks the 10th anniversary of the Henley Classic and they are confident that this partnership will evolve well beyond this year’s Classic.
