A beautiful sunny morning at 9am August 10th 18 swimmers left the beach at Sandsfoot/castle cove beach accompanied by their own kayaker to escort them across Portland harbour to finish at the slipway at osprey leisure centre.

Conditions were perfect with a slight breeze.

This hadn’t been swam as an organised swim for about eight years, but we hope that Weyport Masters will be able to re-establish this event now for years to come.

All 18 swimmers completed the crossing with times ranging from 49 mins to 80 mins.

A welcome bacon butty was had by swimmers and kayaker’s at the end at osprey leisure centre.
