PREVIOUS SESSIONS

Tues, 22nd Jul - Carne

Carne was very hazy this evening and visibility worsened as the evening progressed which meant Whilkeen Rock was out of the equation. We swum in groups and did a smaller course. Swimmers were James, PJ, Paul, Dave, Maeve, Sandra, Nicola, Claire, Paddy and Colman. Guess who showed up today: Vadim, for his first sea swim with the club. Thanks to Heike, Hans and Denise for taking rescue board and kayak duty. Thanks to Amanda for doing shore-line observation.
