Things looked a little dicey last Saturday after lightning struck close by the pool at 6:45. But, it was all plain sailing from there and it turned out to be a nice, but understandably quiet, morning. This Saturday the weather is looking fine. So, if you indulged too much over the festive season, head down to the pool to race off some of that Christmas cheer…
This week we have:
Molly Wark & Les Henry U/10 100m Freestyle – Week 3
After a delayed start, the first half of the season has flown by and there are just two weeks to go before we break for Christmas and new year. If we’ve all been good Santa Claus might come and visit us next week. But first…
50m Butterfly Championship
We start with the 50m Butterfly Championship event. For Championship races there are no handicap starts – everyone starts off “Go”. The fastest person in each age group wins.
Following the Butterfly Championship races we’ll get back to the handicap racing. This week the youngsters (under 10s) will be competing in the Molly Wark & Les Henry U/10 100m Freestyle handicap races (Week 2) and the not so young will be competing for the Over 35 Handicap points and bragging rights.
George Russell 400m Freestyle Handicap Heats
Following the 100m Freestyle races we’ll have the heats for the George Russell 400m Freestyle (Handicap). Note that everyone who currently has a 200m freestyle time is eligible to compete in the George Russell heats – no need for your 200m time to be less than 200 seconds, which is the normal entry criteria. If you haven’t swum a 400m race before, we will calculate your handicap time for the 400m heats based on your current 200m time. The final for this trophy event is the 23rd January 2022 leaving plenty of time to improve and give yourself a chance at the trophy.
