Polkerris Swim Festival:
On Saturday the 24th of August saw Mad Hatter sports events hold a swimming event on Polkerris beach with options of a 3K, 2K or 1K swim. The course will consist of 1km laps and will include a very short Australian exit near the water’s edge ideal for spectators. Ruth Glover was the only person from Mounts Bay Harries at this event & chose to do the 3k swim event. This was her longest sea swim to date, by the time Ruth had done the swim it totalled up to just over 2.1 miles, a few other people had a similar distance on their watches. She was really pleased to complete the swim in a time of 1:05:20. Ruth really enjoyed this event and is now looking forward to taking part in the serpentine 2 mile swim in September. Ruth would like to thank Mad Hatters for organising and putting on another great event.
Swim for Logan:
On Saturday the 24th of August saw the annual Penzance Swim for Logan, where nearly 50 swimmers swim out to the gear pole and back – just under 1 mile for the charity Cystic Fibrosis. For Mounts Bay Harries Janet Haynes and Sasha Osborne took part in rather challenging sea conditions. Sasha Osborne finished 2nd overall in 22.51 and Janet Haynes 7th overall in 27.07.
