The formal presentation of the engraved Cyril Webber Cup to Sadie Davies took place on Clovelly’s Apple Day at the Red Lion Harbour Bar on 23rd October. Sadie was the first lady and only the fourth person to have achieved the formidable feat of completing the 15 mile swim from Hartland Point to Lundy last August. She raised more than £6000 for her chosen charities.

The Cup was presented to Sadie by John Webber (son of Cyril Webber), attended by Gary Readman (who swam to Lundy from Hartland Point with Steve Maclure in September 2017); Simon De Burgh, her trainer; Quinton Davies, her husband, The Hon. John Rous, owner of Clovelly and others.

Sadie’s challenge next summer is to explore the coastline around North Devon and swim from Clovelly to Westward Ho!
