Trident Swim 2011


Hi all, here?s he results from last nights challenge which raised ?502 for the Firefighters charity, Cancer Research and Gylly surf life saving club.

74 swimmers took to the course in the evening sunshine but the choppy conditions added to the challenge with support from Gylly surf life saving volunteers and the Fire service on the water. Heading out to the first buoy it was clear that a number of swimmers were very keen to gain the mighty Trident Trophy getting to the first buoy in under 3 Mins!

Meanwhile the rest of the field followed being a good mixture of young and old and also our first international entrant on holiday from France who did mention that the sea could do with being a little warmer but promised to return.

First swimmer back was last years winner James Edmonds who was followed by Ben May and Kyle Keary the first Female was 13 year old Marissa Nicholls 10th overall from Gylly surf life saving then Gracy Dack with 15 year old Natasha Mundell also from the surf life saving club getting a well deserved third.

The event was also supported from businesses throughout Falmouth 20/20 provided the banner with raffle prizes from Just like this, MC sports, Stones Bakery, Fal Fish, Freeriders, Gylly Beach Caf?, Cavendish caf?, Falmouth Golf course, Rib Ticklers, Roskillys

Once again a great evening of swimming for all and looking forward to next years Olympic event!

Hopefully I should be able to forward some photos to you all in the near future

All the best Martyn Addinall
