Chris and Volunteer Co-ordinator Ali Budykiewicz thanked the event committee which had worked extremely hard in the 9 months preceding the swim and the fantastic group of volunteers who gave up their time on the day to carry out important roles to make this year’s event so successful.
We have already received a number of positive and enthusiastic comments from swimmers and via social media and look forward to seeing everyone again at future club events.
The club continues its season of sea swims from its Shore Road base, 6 for 6.30pm every Tuesday and Sunday throughout the summer.
