SWIM 22: We swam 44 miles!

This event on Friday 17 April was a great success from all points of view.

About 30 swimmers, ranging in age from early 20s to 84 from Kings Cormorants and the Kings College School Club took part. Between them they managed to swim the distance of 44 miles, a double channel crossing, in 1 hour. (equivalent to over 2,360 lengths of the pool)

 

Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the session and some excellent home made cake and flapjacks etc were consumed afterwards, followed by a trip to the pub.

 

We have raised over £1200 so far for diabetes research to date and donations can still be made at https://www.justgiving.com/KCSCDiabetes

 

Massive thanks are due to: Our coach Jane Asher for organising the swimming; The Kings Club for letting us use the pool, providing a life guard and being very supportive; Chris Goodair and the other time keepers and everyone who brought delicious cakes etc.
