Carol Cashell’s 24km Bere Island swim

After helping two very grateful friends to become marathon swimmers last Monday night, Carol Cashell set off at 6.52am yesterday to show how it’s done.

She finished 7 hours and 14 minutes later as the first person ever to swim around Bere Island.  Yet another amazing swim from her this Summer.  The fantastic picture below is by Niall Duffy. Well done, Carol – yet again.
