UPWARDS of 540  competitors swam across to Phillip Island and ran back over the bridge in glorious conditions last Saturday in one of the best San Remo Channel Challenges of the event’s 35 year history.

And the winner, by the length of the San Remo Bridge, was Marcel Walkington.

Here are a few extra photos contributed by Paul Landells including our own Tom McNish.
