James Armour's The Selkie Race going from Barra Head lighthouse in the south to Ness lighthouse at the top of the north of Lewis. James swam, run and cycled massive distance's over the full chain of the islands in the Outer Hebrides to raise funds for the Hebridean Whale and Dolphin Trust. He had a great support squad looking after him with my part being to swim now and again with James across the Sounds of Barra and Harris, which I was honoured to do. On the sound of Harris, James got out at a beach on Killegray, running over the over before getting back in the sea to swim towards Ensay then to the slipway at Leverburgh. Was fantastic to be part of this amazing extreme endurance athlete's support team. Unfortunately my GoPro was playing up during the sound of Harris, so no photo's in the sea from there. James started at 0348 on Friday morning and finished at 0840 on Sunday morning. What a legend!
