EXPEDITION 2: Bois de la Cambre - CANCELED !
For reasons beyond our control, the EXPEDITION SWIM in Bois de la Cambre is cancelled. However, we are already in talks for an alternative date later this summer.
At the moment, the water quality of the ponds does not allow the organization of swimming in it. As you can feel, Brussels experiences an exceptional heat wave. This causes stress not only for us humans but also for the natural habitat of the ponds. In general, the water is constantly influenced by meteorological phenomena, such as ambient temperature or heavy precipitation like thunderstorms. This is followed up by Bruxelles Environnement together with Brulabo.
In order to protect bathers and the environment, we are forced to cancel the swimming this Saturday and Sunday. We are very sorry for this inconvenience.
Please understand that EXPEDITION SWIM is a test program about swimming in existing ponds that are not (yet) made for swimming. The possibility of insufficient water quality is something we took into account from the very beginning. The situation at Pêcheries Royales, the third location, is also followed up closely, you will receive an update about it next week.
We are at the moments in talks with administrations and project partners regarding an alternative date for a swim at Bois de la Cambre later this summer. We will send you an update once we know the new date, your inscription remains valid.
See you very soon.
