12 Way Windermere World Record Relay Attempt

Thomas Noblett, Liane Llewellyn, Keith Bartolo, Michelle Lefton, Michelle Sharples and Dee Llewellyn are well on their way to set the world's longest non-stop relay record in Lake Windermere, the record for actual for lengths of the lake was seven laps, however the team are now into the eighth cycle, in any event the new record is set. They are however heading and aiming for the world record distance for an open water relay, I have been in touch with Thomas, Dee and Liane, updates are being posted around the internet world one of which can be viewed here on the Daily News of Open Water Swimming

UPDATE: around 2250 Monday 30 May, the world record was set at 126 miles having completed 12 full laps of Britains longest lake in far from ideal conditions..congratulations to all swimmers and crews, overall time approx 75.5 hours in water temperatures of 9-11c...awesome job.
