Fab Fireworks500

Thank you for being a part of last night’s swim. It was great to see so many people embrace the chilly waters.

For many it was about the completion of the event for those interested in times results can be found here

Congratulations to speedy shark Sophie Casson fresh from the Masters National Swimming Champs where she gained a European and British record in the 200m freestyle and won the 400m so no real surprise that she posted a storming time of 6:59. Chased by Simon Jones 7:32 and Christine Johnson 7:53.

Congratulations to our younger swimmers, Rebecca Turner 10:02, Luke Atkinson 10:35, Emily Turner 13:25, there were many others which was great to see and we hope you can return next season to take part in our mid week series.

Thank you to the support crew, Alice, Val, Kerry, Pete, Tracy and Neil. Oh and George and Rosa who distributed the medals so well!
