Ivan Percival Swim 2021 – Saturday 26th June by Jim Duffy

Thanks to Sue Bradley, Mas Mohammadifar, John Vogler and Tony Robinson for providing kayak support for the Ian Percival 26th Anniversary Swim organised by Liverpool Open Water Swimming Club on Saturday 26th June. Several charities will benefit from this event including the Teenage Cancer Trust and a young triathlete who has recently suffered life-changing injuries.

There were 91 swimmers who took part in this iconic swim through the Salthouse, Dukes and Kings Docks on distances varying from one to four miles. Water temperature was 19.4C and air temperature ranged from 16-21C with perfect conditions and a great atmosphere amongst the swimmers, supporters and officials.

A special thanks to Sue who stepped up to provide kayak safety support for the first time and led the two miles swim with such panache. Also to The Friends of Allonby Canoe Club who provided four kayakers and to the free-lance kayakers, stand-up paddle-boarder and jet-ski! Thanks also to the Canals and Rivers Trust who supported this event.

Once again thanks for your support.

Jim
