Just read high water issues at Poole with wind and rain again tomorrow. Should be fun.

Also the annual swim at GAFIRS looks like it will be cancelled tomorrow. Last year was great

Well done, I went down for a look, weather was crap and its looked tough going against the wind but a hell of a laugh! Definitely something I'll do next year!

Got some photo's on my phone, were you two doing it alone or with others?

We took a team view...which was while it was ok up near the bridge....by as you got further towards the marina it was silly....so we stayed in the pub and drank Guinness :-)

Think several rafts ended up blown under the bridge...ilb seemed to be on a shout up by the lifeboat college...he had his blue lights going...
