There’s an annual swimming event in Summer in the Alexandra Dock (think it’s there) put on by one of the local clubs. Not aware of anything else other than the Boxing Day thing.

The Water Rats swim in the dock everyweek, Alexandra dock as you state KM.
The annual dock swim is to be held in Sept this year.
Grimsby & Clee triclubs also use Alexandra dock south.
I think a kayak club also use it too??

I think it’s them that do the summer event. Knew it was some sort of animal name.

Would be great if it happens, sadly 20 years later than it should have. Tony Blair and Gordon Brown were chucking money at this kind of regeneration 20 years ago. Which is when Prescott gots his sweaty mitts on a good chunk of it for Hull. Of course Hull City were a really big club in the upper echelons of the Football League in 2000 and Town were just a lower division club, oh wait a minute...

We used to build rafts and have a raft race under the watchful gaze of the Dock Tower way backin the ole cub scouts, does that count?  

On that note used to abseil the Dock Tower until it deemed unsafe to climb the steps, that'd be a cool activity to bring back.

Any of them do that from the top of Dock Tower deserves their seat on the council.

I worked on Pneumonia as a fish lumper for a few years landing the fish before they demolished it, then I worked at Scotprime Seafoods across the road and they also demolished that.

Maybe I should become a steward at BP
