On Saturday 11th July, Hilary took part in a 10km swim from Horton to Moss in Norway. We are extremely proud that she took 3rd place in the women’s category! Well done Hilary! Here’s her report:
It’s the second year they have done an organised swim from Horten to Moss; last year they had 23 people and this year 66.
Only 11 women entered and 7 completed the swim. One of my oldest friends, Janina, won the women’s category (without a wet suit) and I finished third in a time of 3hours 16min.
The swim kicked off at 7.30am and the water temp was 18c to 19c. The swim itself is a mixture of a 5.5km crossing and a 4.5km coastal swim.
We even made the local paper http://www.gjengangeren.no/sport/rekordmange-svommere-krysset-fjorden/s/5-60-23556
