Thanks To All Who Make It Possible
Registration And Timing
Nicola, James and Liam for impeccably running the registration and timing
Ian - from Mounts Bay Harriers – for running the pre-swim training at the Jubilee Pool, enabling so many to get back into the water and for a great job at the last hurdle: helping tired swimmers out of the sea.
Thanks also to Kathryn at Jubilee for helping to set up the training sessions and for the loan of stopwatches.
Carol and Yvonne - our avid collectors – for rattling buckets and tins for the cause.
Jacqui, Jo and Mum and their family did an amazing job with a yummy cake and pasty stall, organising the raffle and providing sustenance for the weary swimmers, well done.
Safety On The Water
Most importantly, a big thank you for safety on the day.
Without support on the water we could not swim, the support these people and organisations provide is vital to the swim and most appreciated.
For the attendance of both the Severn Class Ivan Ellen and the inshore lifeboat: Paul Alexandra
And to Patch for the weather advice.
And Matt Bird - who provided two boats to help monitor the swimmers, they were a constant reassurance to the swimmers.
We had 3 canoeists who were on the water for over an hour and gave a personal escort to the last swimmer - many thanks.
Thanks also to Dan for putting the word out.
