Uswim to France

Saturday, 09 August 2014

The four person relay of Peter Woodward, Marylyn Dickinson, Emily Newton and Ian Shaw who swam as  'Uswim to France' successfully completed their one-way swim when Ian landed one mile north of Cap Gris Nez at 22:30 hrs yesterday (8/8). Their swim time was an excellent 15 hrs 45 mins (to be ratified) having started from Shakespeare beach at 05:45 hrs. The team were on board 'Pathfinder' with pilot Eric Hartley and crew Gary Watkins with Observer Keith Oiller. Many congratulations to the team whose main beneficiaries from fund raising will be Arthur's Appeal at Wythenshawe Hospital and St Ann's Hospice.
