RECORD NE'ERDAY SWIM

Article text
Some 205 swimmers received the famous 'Many are cauld but few are frozen' certificates after taking part on a cold but bright sunny morning at Rhu Marina at noon.

Over 154 cups of hot soup were served to swimmers by the ladies of the local RNLI committee, and a good attendance of spectators donated a record £974 for RNLI funds.

The event was organised as usual by Provost Billy Petrie, his wife Jean, and members of their family. The swimmers came from several countries, including America.
