This weekend saw the SWIM SERPENTINE 2017 Event take place in Hyde Park London. This prestige event attracts many swimmers each year and for our very own Louis Hines, this year his second invitation, he swam a brilliant race and won the Elite Mens Para-Race in a record time (subject to ratification)

Please can you convey my thanks to everybody for the lovely retirement gifts and card. I have not copied in others as I am sure to miss some so it you can pass it on it would be great.
I have wanted to sail for as long as I remember, it is certainly on my bucket list and I am sure it will re ignite a dream to reality. I will look forward to it.
I made a space for the aptly named rose bush and planted with care, banana skins should do it. It is now flowering for the 2nd time this year. I’m sure it will be blooming lovely for years to come.
Wine and chocs will also be enjoyed.
Thanks very much
Claire

If you enjoyed this meet then please join us at our next the Watford County Qualifier 25th and 26th November 2017
Sunday 11th June was a Great day for Watford Swimming Club

.

The Jubilee River Swim is a beautiful 10k swim which is split into 4 sections by 3 weirs.
This year we entered 2 relay teams. In second place out of all the relay teams came:
“Blue Marlins”, namely Pedro Irvine, Harrison Lees, James Irvine, and Shannon Nichols.
Closely followed in fourth place by “Red Snappers” who were Harrison Bullock (Berko swim club), Victoria Pope, Callum Bullock (Berko swim club) and James Pope.
They were by far the youngest of the 58 relay teams but what’s more impressive is they swam skins (without wetsuits) in the 16C water.
With parents following on the tow path, our tough guys jostled for position in the elite wave. They went under bridges, through dark tunnels, dodging sticks, weeds and slower swimmers.
At the end of each section the timing chip was passed over and the swimmer sprinted to the next entry point. With the sun on their backs our teams weaved through swimmers in the earlier waves to a fantastic finish.

 

6 swimmers from our master’s squad competed with 320 solo swimmers. The results were: Paul Cuthbert (18th solo M), Ben Cope (24th solo M), Ian Gregory (16th solo M), Alice Jennison (16th solo F), Sasha Wisdish (4th solo F) and me Jeremy Irvine (16th solo M skins).
Entries have already opened for next year and are filling fast.

 

So have you got what it takes? Will you be 14 years or over by June 2018?
If so then drop me a line quickly at

 

East Region Championships – Weekend 2



19 of our top junior swimmers travelled to Norwich this weekend, competing in 29 events between them, claiming 7 medals and setting countless PBs.

Maggie was our first swimmer up on Saturday morning, taking on her favoured event, the 200m Butterfly. Swimming the event in a 50m pool for the first time, she finished a very respectable 15th place in her age group. Next up were the boys in the 200m Breaststroke; Alex W, Enzo, Ketan and Lewis were taking part and after some tough swims, Alex and Lewis qualified for their age group finals in 4th and 7th places, with Enzo and Ketan finishing in 12th and 15th places in their age groups. The 100m Breaststroke for the girls saw Harriet, Ellie, Erin and Alex L step up for their first race of the championships. With some new long course PBs under their belts, Erin and Ellie qualified for the 14y/o final in 6th and 7th place, and Alex finishing in 31st place in the same age group. Harriet, just off her best time, finished in 13th place in the 13y/o age group. In the boys 50m Butterfly, Alex W and Enzo qualified for the 11/12 y/o final, with Dan just missing out in a new long course PB, Ben and Ketan finished in 19th and 28th in the 13y/o age group, and in the 14y/o age group Devesh qualified for the final in 8th place, with Lewis just off his best, finishing in 35th.
