BHF Pier to Pier Challenge 2009

Club members were amongst the 1200 people who swam the 1.4 miles from Bournemouth to Boscombe piers on a windy Sunday 19 July in aid of the British Heart Foundation.

Organisers hope to raise £85,000 from the event through registration fees and sponsorship and particpants are urged to send in their sponsorship money as soon as possible.

If you missed the event, another BHF swim takes place in Weymouth on 9 August 2009.

You can get a flavour of the Bournemouth swim from a video posted on Youtube by xbrillx (4m 43s flashplayer required to view)
