Saartje swims East Lothian coastline

On Sunday 8th October ELO member Saartje Drijver completed her swim of the whole coast of East Lothian from Fisherrow harbour in Musselburgh to Cove harbour near Cockburnspath. Saartje completed the 65km swim in sections over four weekends. Most sections were approximately two hour swims but Sunday’s finale between Barns Ness lighthouse and Cove harbour was a four hour marathon.

In case you think this has no relevance to our sport – be warned: Saartje is looking for a suitable venue to stage a swim orienteering event.
