Starcross Swim

that was the local press but what they didn't manage to mention was Nigel Snowshall's effort to attend the start of the swim, insistent he wanted to give others the chance to crew the boat he set about powering himself to the event, he initially set out from Exmouth on a Prone Paddleboard to show the youngsters also attending the event to follow the individual swimmers how it was done, he began the 1.5 mile mile effort well on his knees

before hitting the water to swim the remaining distance to the event.

all of this effort just to attend let alone then provide safety cover at this brilliant local event.
 Here's Jonny Hawkins one of our finest, mentally preparing himself courtesy of his thinking hat on the pontoon at the start.
