All England Stone-skimming results

One of the happy memories of my childhood is my father teaching me to bounce flat stones off the surface of a lake or the sea.

In turn I taught the same skill to my own children when they were small.

I never realised it was a competitive sport, but apparently it is, and the All England championships were held in Cumbria at Fell Foot Park a few days ago. The winner, Kevin Waltham, set a new record by bouncing a stone for 86 metres along the surface of Windermere. Wow!
