British Long Distance Swimming Association’s One Hour Postal Swim – Jan/Feb 2011

Postal SwimThe first of the overseas postal swims for 2011 was the British Long Distance Swimming Association’s one hour swim which needed to be swum during January/February 2011.

We had two entries - Brenda Day came first in her age group (out of 24) and Caroline Makin came eighth (out of 36) in her age group.

After the many “mega” swims many of our members did recently, an hour swim next year should be a doddle, so keep it in mind!
