The Wild West Solent Swim

Sarah Smith, Liz Lloyd and Madeline Goodman all swam across early in the morning, leaving Hurst at around 7.50am.  The weather and sea conditions were absolutely perfect, and it was a very lucky window between the hideous weather of late.  It was a fantastic event and quite a spectacle with 64 swimmers travelling in pairs accompanied by 35 kayakers, 6 safety boats and two lifeboats.  There was a huge crowd gathered at Colwell slipway to welcome everyone back which was quite overwhelming! You can see some photo's of the event here.
As you are aware the event is to raise funds for the Sports Centre if you would like to make a donation to them, you can do this here.
