Nick Adams won the 139th Annual Christmas Day race and is presented with the Peter Pan cup by the Greenbury family. He completed the course in a new club record of 57 seconds. Yoko Reed was the second swimmer home and the first woman and was awarded the Wendy Cup.
There were around 40 swimmers participating in the race, and several hundred watching. The water was a balmy 42oF, and the air temperature was very mild. Tony Cuthbert kindly supplied vast amounts of alcohol (port and brandy concoction) that was enjoyed by all the swimmers. Well done to all that swam or watched.
