Swimmers hit Dover Harbour

Dover Harbour was invaded by aspiring Channel Swimmers.

Due to the unusually cold weather, only 30 swimmers braved the waters of Dover Harbour.  The water was 8.3oC, and it was rather nippy out of the water too.

The open water training should be starting for all aspiring swimmers around the world by now.
