Ali beats ladies world record!

On Tuesday 20th July JLDSC member Alison Wood set off very excitedly from la Coupe Point at 07.08am heading for France - finally after booking her swim 4 years ago! Ali, a seasoned swimmer, was seen off by many well wishers despite the very early start. Ali's impressive swim record includes the Jersey round island swim in 1995 and the English Channel in 1997.
