Herm Swim - Updated 31/08/13 18:00hrs - ASSUME IT'S ON

Not an easy decision this evening!

Mark and Emma met this evening with a few others to see the start of the Guernsey Swimming Club Herm swim, which was not started due to the stronger wind today evening and rougher than wanted sea conditions. 

Mark spoke with Naomi from swimming club who agreed that it was a difficult call, but also thought conditions could improve overnight and wished us luck.

Conditions are expected to improve overnight with the wind veering to NE force 3 - 4 and sea conditions expected to be slight. 

With the hoped for calm period around dawn we are still hoping that the swim can take place, but conditions to make this prediction are marginal so the best we can do now is make a final decision in the morning.  

Please assume that the swim is ON, an early start for all of us, meet as arranged at 5.15am at North Quay, opposite Rabeys with the safety boats and kayaks gathering in the Harbour mouth. 

We do have a backup date toward the end of September if we have to postpone at the last minute, but hope we will swim in the morning, the safety of anyone in or on the water is paramount. 

Hope to see you all in the morning. 


Mark / Emma
