After the disappointent of the initial swim on 6th August being postponed, it was with some relief that the swim took place on 20th August. Disappointment, too, for the 31 swimmers who couldn’t make the backup date, but this was a little offset by the 15 new swimmers who ‘swam into the breach’.
Conditions were more challenging than the ‘mill pond’ of last year, but thankfully only one swimmer had to be pulled from the water. And the lifeboats past & present cavalcade was a mood enhancing backdrop to the event. Some photos for you below and here is a little video, taken by one of the kayakers, which is also mood reflective.
So, thanks to the sponsors, the safety crews, the RNLI, Coastguard and Tenby Surflink and Sailing Club personnel and all the organising committee for another Caldey Swim completed.
