A brief break in the weather

Our mistress, The Channel, 'allows' two relays to sneak across.

After a prolonged period of dire weather for swimming, the weather broke long enough for two relay teams to make it:

Sunday 5th August
"Crouching Tiger Swimming Dragons" - 4-man Relay - Successful in 13:32
"Silver Marlins" - 2-way Relay - Successful in 24:04 [11:42 + 12:22] 

As usual, all times and results are unofficial until officially ratified by the CS&PF Committee.
