Ladies 2-way Channel record broken again!

Just 16 days after the Ladies 2-way record was broken, it's been broken again!!

Some fabulous swims to report on.

Lance Oram does it again, successfully piloting a 6-ladies 2-way relay to France and back to break the record again, just over two weeks after first breaking it this year.

Ian Down, our hard working committee member, saw a big setback on the 23rd July, when he was unsuccessful in his attempt to notch up a second Channel swim.  He didn't let this beat him, and got back in the Channel and made it to France.  We are very proud of him.
