Donald and myself managed 1st team in the local 3rd Hebridean Triathlon today. Thanks to all the helpers (Surf Lewis and Harris, Coastguards, BASF, digger drivers, communities, marshalls, family and friends) who made the event run smoothly. This event couldn't happen without their support...Well done to all who took part too, total stars...
Nice walk down to the shore at Shulishader this afternoon with Donna & Loki. It would make a great place for a tidal pool and I'll be back here for a swim for sure. Beautiful place. Watch yourself on them steps if you plan to go...
Photo's from the Big Minch Swim 2018. Well done to Colleen Blair on becoming Queen of the Minch. Norman and myself never reached the finish due to a number of factors. I'll maybe go back another year and try again. Duckman was saying anything from 10.7 degrees to 13 degrees. I made the headlines for all the wrong reasons and there is some fake news online too....I'd also like to thank the support crew and the rescue squad. Apologies to Donna, family and friends who were worried sick till they knew I was ok. Was quite the day/night. 30 miles of swimming, over 20 hours in the sea. Fingers are crossed that Paul Finnegan completes his attempt this year. He's a great guy. theminchswims.co.uk/
Nice chill out swim at Garry beach this afternoon with Colleen, Norman, Roisin, Laura & Simon. Bit of exploring around the coast. High tide was too low to swim all the way through the sea stack. Duckman was saying 13.5 degrees.
