Chanel Swim - 08/07/14
The President, Chairman, Secretary and members of the Management Committee of Brighton Swimming Club on behalf of the entire club, send their congratulations to:
Lois Harrison, Max Andrews, Peter Tuffin, Bill Warner,
Dan McCarthy and Andy King
who so successfully swam the Channel Relay earlier this week.
It was a tremendous achievement and so rewarding after what has probably been some very hard training. It was particularly good to have a wide spread of ages representing the club on this relay.
Thanks and congratulations are also due to reserve swimmer Andy Rees, the support team and the families of all concerned.
Well done to you all.

Chanel Swim - 28/08/13
Yves Watts started his solo channel swim on Wednesday 28th August at 0433hrs. Sea conditions are slightly choppy with a breeze but no problems. He is swimming strongly at present.
Text from Fiona at 1112hrs says 7 hours in and over half way. Huge swells, the boat's being tossed all over the show.
There have been communication problems but I have heard that Yves successfuly crossed and finished at 1649hrs, a time of 12hr 16mins. A fuller report will no doubt be made available in the near future. Congratulations Yves on yet another channel swim by a Brighton sc member.
