Two Essex lads competed in Mersea Rounds Island Sailing Race with a difference - they didn't use a boat! Instead Josh Taylor and Alan Morgan, both from the Island, swam the 22km route.

The 22-year-olds have now completed their very own version of a triathlon having canoed and run round the island.
