Club member Laurence Courtney in English Channel Relay Swim

The Myrtleville Selkies English Channel relay team: Brenda Sisk, Harry Casey, Ann Smyth, Marie Watson, Laurence Courtney, and John Kiely.

Spotted in the news during the week. Club member Laurence Courtney is part of six member team who will attempt a relay crossing of the English Channel on Friday. Named the ‘Myrtleville Selkies’, they will be swimming at least double the length of the 35km-wide channel, as the currents force participants to swim from side to side as the tide ebbs and flows.
