East Dorset Open Water Swimming Club held its fifth annual Seahorse Swim on 22 Jun by kind permission of the National Trust and in support of the Seahorse Trust. The open water swim attracted 207 swimmers from all over the country and was held in near perfect conditions.

Club Chairman Bob Holman said that the club was very grateful for the help and support from RLSS Poole and associated lifesaving clubs for providing fantastic safety cover. Bob was delighted by very positive feedback from the swimmers, a tribute to the hard work of his committee and support from a fantastic group of volunteers on the day.
