Race against time

Broughty Ferry swimmers will tackle an endurance challenge against the clock this weekend.

Members of Ye Amphibious Ancients Bathing Association will set out on a 13-mile relay route between Broughty Ferry and St Andrews tomorrow (Saturday).

The seven swimmers will set off from St Andrews harbour at 11 a.m. and take 30-minute shifts to cover the distance.

The Phibbies are also holding their annual ‘bridge to bridge’ challenge on August 18.

They are being assisted by Dundee Leisure and Olympia and for the first time will be open to non-members.

The closing date is August 15 and enquiries can be made through the club website at www.yeaaba.org.uk or by emailing Joyce McIntosh at joyce.mcintosh@blueyonder.co.uk
