Laure Latham, Elina Grigoriou, James Lythe and Anne Somerville swim well

Proud to be part of it

I'm delighted to share with the club that four Serpies have just completed swimming the length of Windermere, writes Rob Ouldcott.

The four successful solo swimmers are Laure Latham, Elina Grigoriou, James Lythe and Anne Somerville.

The water was a warm 19 centigrade, with very light winds, however we had regular rain showers to ensure we were reminded that it was a traditional British summer.

The completion times ranged from just under 8 to 9 hrs.

All swimmers managed to remain cheerful throughout the swim even in heavy rain.

The successful support crew included Sarah Ouldcott, Enora a new Serps member, Kylie and Cedric Guyot. Next week, Laure will return the favour as she crews for husband Cedric when he will swim Lake Zurich. Oh, and me, Rob Ouldcott was also support crew.

It made me proud to be part of such a great team and such a great club.
