Despite choppy seas, forty two intrepid swimmers from age 7 to 61 took part in last Saturday's Paddle for Potcakes.FREEPORT, Grand Bahama -- Despite choppy seas, forty two intrepid swimmers from age 7 to 61 took part in last Saturday's Paddle for Potcakes, the HSGB's annual "pre-Basra" swim race and family fun day.  Congratulations to all the swimmers, (winners below) especially to 14 year old Joanna Evans who was the top overall swimmer, with a half mile time of 8:11.  Michael McIntosh was the overall male swimmer with a time of 8:35. The swim relay race was won by the team of Lauren Butler, Michael Hendley, Sarah Hamilton and Letitia Parker.  

Swimmers and spectators (including a few former shelter dogs!) then enjoyed an activity packed day of fun and sun, including tug-of-war, volleyball, food and drink, scavenger hunt for the kids, and a raffle with some great prizes.  The Junkanoo Beach Club "Rottweilers" were the champions of both tug of war and volleyball, edging out the GB Nature Tours Labradors, and the HSGB Potcakes in hard fought bouts.
