Family to present George Wheaton BBB trophy

The final for the George Wheaton 50m BBB handicap race will be held this Saturday and is one of the most hotly contested and historic trophy races of the season!

George Wheaton was 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. His last surviving son, Noel, who was racing with his father that day, would keenly follow the results of the race each year before he sadly passed away six years ago.

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

The names of the finalists for this year’s race, including the ‘B’ stroke they will be swimming, are listed here.

We are delighted that members of George Wheaton‘s family will attend the final this Saturday to present the BBB trophy to the winner, including George Wheaton “Junior”, the great great grandson of the trophy’s namesake.

800m and Family Fun Day

Geribo Cup 2019

For our final meet of the season this Saturday we will be holding the 800m Open Freestyle Championships followed by our Family Fun Day.

The early start and hotly-contested relay race for our chocolate trophy will be the perfect lead in to St Mark’s Drummoyne School Fete that day.

800m Championships – 7am

The 800m Championships will start at the earlier time of 7am. Everyone who is able to swim the 16 laps is welcome to participate. Please arrive at the pool before 7am to sign in for the race.

Family Fun Day – 8am

The Family Fun Day will start after the 800m Championships, at around 8am, so you can arrive at this time if you are not swimming in the 800m.

We will be holding lots of fun races and relays, including boogie board races and a relay race for the tastiest prize of the season – the Geribo Cup chocolate trophy!

Remember to bring along your boogie board, li-lo and thongs for some fun races in the pool!

Relay Teams

There will be two 4x50m relay events on Saturday:

  • Family relay
