Iain Johnston completes remarkable race in the Firth of Forth

Newmarket Swim Club Masters swimmer Iain Johnston recently completed a remarkable race in the Firth of Forth. Please read below Iain's account of the swim and see the attached photo. "The race was across the Firth of Forth (Edinburgh to Fife), below the iconic Railway Bridge (1890), about 2.2k (1.4 miles), so it was in the sea with a bit of a current. The river was closed to shipping for an hour while the race took part. It was a beautiful morning, the bridge looked so majestic in the soft morning light. I have crossing the railway bridge countless times in my youth, never thought I would get to swim under it. Good result as well, 1st wetsuit, 2nd overall (behind the sponsored swimmer, Howard James*)" ————————— *Howard James has the record for the ‘earliest successful English channel crossing’ done in May. He has swam it a few times, as well as swimming the North channel, big guy and he looks like a proper swimmer, respect!
