This was another magnificant open water swimming event at Brownsea Island this year with lots of competitors and extremely well organised. RLSS Poole Lifeguard organise the annual event and encourage swimmers to use their swim to raise sponsorship funds for charities of their own choosing. As a result this year a staggering £23,124 was pledged to a whole host of local and national charities.
