Grace Darling Memorial swim 2013


A group of six open water swimmers tackled this tough swim, never before successfully completed. It began at the sheltered side of the Longstone Lighthouse, through the Farne Islands, past Big Harcar, where Grace Darling and her father rescued survivors of the wreck on the paddle steamer, the Forfarshire 7th September 1838
