On the 12th July 2014 the kingfishers Open Water team under took on their most challenge event todate with several of them swimming the channel as a relay the previous year, this challenge was over two days and twice as long as the channel.
The First day went well with the swimmers managing 8hrs 29mins and managing to swim to hayburn wyke.
Unfortunatly the weather conditions for the following day had deteriated and the rest of the swim was completed from hayburn wyke to speeton on the 26th July 2014
The team is hopefully going to repeat the challenge for a second time in 2015 and hopefully beat their original target.
