Mission accomplished! (Message from Richard)

It was hard with waves at 3 to 4 metres high at times but we did it in a quick time (thanks to a friendly current) in just under 3 hours, having started at 6.45am, and my GPS pointed to a distance of just under 12 km.
In short the conditions were very rough indeed and I had multiple calf cramp episodes but the last hour was a little easier with the waves and current right behind us, taking us home. At times I thought I was in a washing machine – I have been well and truly pummeled! This is the windy side of HK Island – none of this wimpy calm ocean swimming around Repulse Bay etc!

Please find some evidence attached.

A group of asylum-seekers, originally from Sudan, Yemen and Somalia, welcomed us at Shek O beach and I managed to talk to them about their stories – what these two charities are doing is amazing!

Again, thank you so so much if you donated. If you haven’t managed to donate, please do! I’m really keen to get to my goal and we are so close. Have a look at the pictures attached – surely a donation is deserved?! Big or small, it all counts!
