Week 6: The George Wheaton BBB Final and the Canada Bay Cup

This week we have a big program of events to get through, with two trophies on offer – the prestigious George Wheaton BBB Trophy and the Mayor’s Canada Bay Cup. As well as these two trophy races, we have the 100m Freestyle, 50m Breaststroke and the 400m Freestyle events.

George Wheaton BBB Final

The BBB is a unique race in which the competitors race against each other swimming their favourite “B” stroke – Breaststroke, Backstroke or Butterfly!

The race is named in honour of George Wheaton – a former secretary of Drummoyne Swimming Club who tragically died after racing his four sons in a “Father and Son” race at the Club in 1937. The trophy was inaugurated in the 1939-40 season and is one of the Clubs most sought after prizes. Wheaton family members will join us pool side for the final.

The finalists for the George Wheaton 50m BBB Handicap and their nominated strokes are as follows:

Canada Bay Cup

Election campaigning schedule permitting, our Club Patron Mayor Angelo Tsirekas will join us for the Canada Bay Cup this coming Saturday. This will be the second time we’ve run this relay and we’re hoping a team from within the LGA will take out the trophy this season.

The “Canada Bay Cup” is a race in which residents of the various suburbs in the Canada Bay LGA will square off against each other to see which is the fastest suburb. This relay race will be held on Saturday the 27th of November 2021 at Swim Club. The format is a mixed handicap relay. The number of participants will be determined from the entries received. We’ll also field a relay team of swimmers from outside of the LGA.

To enter the Canada Bay Cup please enter your name and suburb using this link.

  • 200m Freestyle

As always, there will be shorter races on for those who don’t, for example, wish to do 100m butterfly.

Specifically, for younger swimmers not able to complete 100 metres or 50 metres – 20 and 30 metre races are held. This is also the case for distance events – instead of 4 x 50 metres (200m), younger swimmers are encouraged to swim 4 x 30 metres or 4 x 20 metres.
