The normal format for the annual Clyde Swim is to leave Dunoon in RIB’s and head to the Cloch lighthouse on the eastern shore. The swimmers disembark into the Clyde and make the return journey under their own steam, landing at the West Bay,Dunoon.
This year, due to the weather forecast a change of plan was required. The chosen start point was Seal Rock, just north of the Balaclava Garage. This guaranteed that the usual 1.6 nautical miles were covered and the finishing point stayed as originally planned.
I volunteered to help out with the support for the event. Basically getting in the kayak to help keep an eye on the participants, should they require assistance.
Some footage from the kayak at the start.
Huge congratulations to all taking part and a huge well done to those that organised and helped on the day.
