National Open Water Festival

This year we sent our biggest ever team of seven swimmers to the National Open Water Championships. First off were our three 13 year olds in the 1.5km race: Ben Millington came an impressive 10th for his second ever open water race, Oscar Miles came 23rd and Conor Wright soldiered through with a shoulder injury to come 35th.  Next up was Charley Langford in the 14 years’ 1.5km race; he produced a storming 6th placed swim.  Session two saw the start of the 15 years’ 3km races, Olivia Miles was competing in her first ever race and finished in a fantastic 6th place.  Lily Jewell’s race was impacted by a deliberate and forceful dunking; she soldiered on to finish in 21st position.  Finishing the day was Sam Crabtree in the 17/18 years’ 5km race; he had us on the edge of our seats by placing 9th, then 5th, then 4th, then 2nd on each lap, he finished a very close 4th after a stitch on the final lap.

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.
