Amazing Amphibians

BROUGHTY Ferry harbour will play host to an ancient breed of aquatic guests this weekend.

Members of Ye Amphibious Ancients Bathing Association are taking part in a 24-hour relay in preparation for a forthcoming race.

The swimmers will meet for a briefing tomorrow (Saturday) at 4 p.m. before each of the participants takes their turn at the four-mile course.

It is expected that each member will complete either a 30 minute or one hour leg of the relay before finishing at 4.30 p.m. on Sunday.

This is intended to help them prepare for a gruelling distance race on August 6 between Broughty Ferry and St Andrews.
