The Chestnut Appeal would like to thank all those who took part in the rescheduled Drakes Island swim and Paddle which took place on Sunday 25th July.
Sunday’s conditions were just perfect . swimming on a High Spring Tide is always a challenge and with the currents somehow pushing swimmers in the same direction both ways despite an outgoing tide the swim distance ranged from 1.8km to 2.5km.
and there were some great personal challenges being undertaken yesterday . the Chestnut Appeal would like to thank you all .
special thanks also to Andy, Adrian, Perry and Peter for getting up super early on a Sunday morning to lend a hand at registration. and Thanks as always to the fantastic water safety team from Event Water Safety. (see attached!)
the swim was sponsored by Drakes Jewellers and Guardian UK Ltd. support with costs is really vital and helps the charity raise the maximum funds from the events.
