Seahorse Swim 2014

East Dorset Open Water Swimming Club held its fifth annual Seahorse Swim on Sunday attracting 207 swimmers from all over the country. The swim from Knoll Beach, Studland was held by kind permission of the National Trust and in support of the Seahorse Trust and was blessed with fabulous weather and a sea temperature of 16C.

Club chairman Bob Holman said that there had been a number of challenges in previous years but this year the event was held in near perfect conditions. He said that the club was very grateful for the help and support from RLSS Poole and associated lifesaving clubs for providing fantastic safety cover. Bob said that his committee had worked extremely hard and had been supported by a fantastic group of volunteers on the day.

There had also been a very positive feedback from the swimmers. Jim Boucher commented ”You set yourselves a high standard because the previous year was so good and yet today was even better. You had more swimmers, better trophies and what a marvellous atmosphere – smiling swimmers and great banter too before the start”.

The club continues its season of sea swims from its Shore Road base, 6 for 6.30pm every Tuesday and Sunday throughout the summer.
