Henley Mile

Congratulations to Sam and Josh Crabtree on their successes at the Henley Mile.  Sam competed in the Elite ‘Suits v Skins’ race against a serious four-strong team from Wycombe.  In the first wetsuit race he finished third after getting boxed in, so the afternoon’s non-wetsuit swim became a matter of honour. Sam stormed the race and finished with an 18 second lead. This resulted in an overall WIN for the fastest combined time.  Josh decided to swim the half mile non-wetsuit, he went out fast and led convincingly for most of the race.  He finished in BRONZE position having been pipped by two wetsuit swimmers at the finish.

Sheerness Team Gala

The Dolphin squad fielded a team at the Ron Crowther Memorial Gala in Sheerness on Saturday Evening. This was a great opportunity for many swimmers who don’t often get to experience the chance of team swimming and they really rose to the occasion, showing some fantastic team spirit.
They came equal third, along with Herne Bay SC, with wins from Isabelle Wilcox, Rily Rattigan and Natalia Austin all in the 10&under age group.  There were many PBs on the night which was especially impressive for some who had only just set those times the previous Sunday at the Margate Open.
