The swims

At times it was a bit rough but only the Sunday STD was aborted

Conditions on the Saturday put a few people of (erh well most people actually)

 

Records suggest seven people STD on the Saturday although this photo shows four

As ever when the sea if rough it is worst under and behind The Door

 

But you can still take photos

 

Of course, you can still take selfies

 

 

 

Awards

Of course, it would be wholly irresponsible to issue awards just to people who have achieved a STD

 

  • People who achieved STD on the Saturday– Christiane, Digger, Jonney, Mark, Ron, Rosie/Isla and Will

 

  • Person who has travelled the furthest- technically Will (US) but that would be fake news as we know he is living in Cambridge, in practical terms its therefore Louise and Richard.

 

  • First (known) Scottish person to Swim the Door– Rosie/Isla

Rosie (the one on the right). Will (the one on the left)

 

  • First (known) person from Hawaii to Swim the Door– Will

Apparently the sea is not as warm as “back home”. Note. Will also receives the Neil West “I’m very tired” award

 

  • Best inflatable thing

The inflatable is the thing on the right (photo by Zoe)

 

 

  • Mystery woman to Swim the Door (The Ursula Award)- ??? (just to left of The Door- respect!)

Somewhere out there is a mystery woman

  • Best injury at this years STD- Helen or Digger

We had all been a bit dismissive of the presence of sharks in the sea off Dorset, but here is the evidence…………

 

Oh, Ok then. Well Helen injured herself on the walk down. Note. no emergency services other than Mark and Russell were required.

 

Digger. “Its worse than it look” copycat.

 

  • Best starring at a barbee that will never cook– everyone

 

  • Best collection of booze– Digger caravan

 

  • Best excuse submitted for STD non-attendance Chris or Neil

“I’m so so sorry to be able to join you in the cold and dangerous sea but I have a bad cold- and I have the ladybird book on throwing a sickie to read” (Chris pers comm)

 

“I’m so so sorry I can’t join you in the cold and dangerous sea, but I’m leading a group up K2- by pure chance this will be the furthest and highest I have ever gone to avoid the STD weekend” (Neil pers comm)

 

 

Note. this list is comprehensive and not competitive list.
