On Sunday 20th July 10 intrepid swimmers and their support crew travelled to Whitlingham Lake to take part in the Open Water Swim event there.
We had swimmers in the 3 Km race, the 800 M races and the 1500 M races. The swimmers competed bravely and nearly all came in successfully. Unfortunately the end of the 1500 M event was interrupted by a lightening storm and tremendous rain, and the swimmers in the final heat were called from the water early.
Congratulations to all the swimmers who took part, and commiserations to those who were unable to finish due to the poor weather!
