Yacht Inn Newlyn to Penzance Macmillan Cancer Charity swim 2015


Watched by half the town, over 350 hundred swimmers head for the open waters of Mount's Bay in the annual Yacht Inn Macmillan Cancer Support charity swim...



it's like lemmings heading for the sea..


Tom is keeping an eye on the start line...


as the swimmers get their orders from the starter...


and they are off!...


just as the Scillonina III  makes her way back to Penance...


the ILB gets in some inshore practice...


11 minutes later there are three in close contention for the race...


as the eventual winner, Neil Eddy heads for the finishing line in 15 minutes and 51 seconds...


and gets a few photos from family and fans...


what it's all about...


the swimmers are stretched over most of the course...


some are looking forward to a well earned pint coming in 84th after 22 minutes and 12 seconds of hard swimming in choppy conditions, of water maybe...

Now watch the start!
