The annual Plymouth breakwater race - 9th Sep 2017

The brave one

Roll over the picture to enlarge.

Throughout the day weather conditions were being monitored as there was a possibility the event may have to be cancelled. Luckily as the day went on conditions improved so a decision was made to go ahead with the event. High Tide was at 2051, Sunset at 1945, Wind was from the NW about 5-7Knts, visibility was good, sea swell was smooth in the sound and sea temperature 16.1 degrees, chances of showers was high (experienced one short spell of rain during the race). A double rainbow appeared and many photos were taken - I'd like to say I planned this but unfortunately I can't.

 

The safety brief was conducted outside of the Mayflower Sailing Club building before boarding the boats to head out to the start at the Breakwater Lighthouse. All safety canoes (Port of Plymouth Canoe Association and Barry Moss Plymouth RNRM SC), safety RIBs (Horizon Trust), MV Friendship (Horizons Trust) and Yacht Emerald Blue (Dave Curno's - Corinthian Yacht Club) arrived on station as planned so the race was able to start on time at 1730. The support provided by the various organisations mentioned above was much appreciated and without it the Swim would not take place.

 

Officials were located both afloat and on Tinside Beach with Medical coved afloat being provided by Dr Vivek Kulkarni of the ASA and First Aid cover by Mr Rob Lowe - Plymouth RNRM SC. All officials from the City of Plymouth ASA Swimming Clubs did a great job and the event ran smoothly.

 

Swimmers enjoyed the challenge and all had great swims having to fight against the tide on occasions. Results above.

A presentation was organised by Sally Davies and Lesley McCreery held outside of the Boathouse restaurant with swimmers receiving Cups, medals, certificates and goody bags presented by Esther Rookes - CoP ASA Chairperson. Official photographs were taken by Richard Davies
