Ahh Pip, ever the best of friends

Admirable Amanda

The water was 40oF, and seemed not too cold.  There was an excellent turnout, with some good races.
To paraphrase George Eliot from Silas Marner, Pippa Durrant remained ever the best of friends by bringing one of her mates to the cold water Serpentine.
Pippa brought her friend Amanda for a morning swim and she coped admirably.
