Charity swimmers hope to enter the record books

A group of charity swimmers are waiting to hear if a relay across the Firth of Clyde will enter the record books. The Arran TrooNautics completed the first official 16-mile open water swim from Arran to Troon last Saturday.

The two teams of mainland swimmers set off before sunrise at 5.18am and arrived at Barassie beach after sunset, 15 hours, 19 minutes later at 8.37pm. The air temperature was quite brisk and the water temperature was a chilly 13 degrees, rising to 14 degrees during the day.
