We had an amazing time on Sunday the 22nd of June at the Seahorse Swim at Studland Beach organised and run by Bob Holman and his amazing team of volunteers and swimmers. The event has been running for several years now and has grown from 50 swimmers in its first year to 230 this year and once again EDOWSC kindly supported the work of The Seahorse Trust by inviting us along and making a very generous donation of £300 towards our work at Studland.
Trust Director Neil started the race and set the swimmers on their way and at the end of the long gruelling course he presented some of the prizes.
It was a very hot sunny day and everyone who took part enjoyed themselves and the team of volunteers who ran the race did a fantastic job of making sure everyone was safe and well looked after.
It was so fantastic to see The Seahorse Trusts logo on the back of everyone’s t-shirts and our own team of volunteers answered many questions about the work at Studland.
Filming the race were Ross and Will who are doing a degree at Bristol University linked with the Natural history Unit; they were flying their quad copter over the swimmers to get a seagull’s eye view of the events and we hope to have a link to the footage online soon.
On behalf of The Seahorse Trust our trustees, patrons, members and supporters I would like to thank Bob and his incredible team for a very enjoyable day and if you want to learn more and maybe do a sponsored swim for The Seahorse Trust please have a look at their website and Facebook www.edowsc.org/ed/ and www.facebook.com/eastdorsetopenwater
