NESSIE LOSES OUT!

28/08/2005

Andrea and her team have completed a triple crossing of Loch Ness in horrendous conditions, to enter the record books and without a scratch from Nessie!

The team are presently heading into the weir at Dochdarroch lock at Inverness, after having completed the marathon undertaking. Despite being wracked with the cold conditions, heavy rain and strong winds, the team are elated to have again achieved their goal and yet another first in the record books.

Andrea hopes to raise as much money as possible for the RNLI and her website will remain open for any last donations on www.justgiving.com/andreagellan. Although Andrea made a fantastic collection of £1200 for her Channel swim last year, she is sitting with only £146.15 so far on the website and is hoping that people will see the effort she has made in carrying out this record attempt and will offer more donations for her chosen cause.

Photographs of the event have been taken and these should be available later tonight.
