On 30th August in the Dardenelles Gary took part in the 6.2 k Hellespont Swim. It was a great occasion with around 500 competitors.
At about 10 mins into the swim I settled into my stroke - but slowed up whilst avoiding the hundreds of Jellyfish in the water! The cut off time was 1 hour 30 mins and I managed to complete it in 1 hour 3 mins which was about half way in the field. Gonna go back next year and shave 10 mins off that!
Anyway was a success on my way to raising the £10,000 for St.Davids foundation. Next - The Everest Marathon!
