Mas­ter­ing the lake

Avon Valley Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

HUN­DREDS of swim­mers will con­verge on Lake Leschenaultia in Chid­low for an open wa­ter swim­ming event next month.

Mun­dar­ing Shire Pres­i­dent David Lavell said this year’s event on Novem­ber 12, or­gan­ised by the Maida Vale Mas­ters Swim­ming Club, was open to all swim­mers.

“I am thrilled we can of­fer our spec­tac­u­lar Lake Leschenaultia as a venue for this ex­cit­ing event,” he said.

“It’s been great that Maida Vale Mas­ters have show­cased one of the Shire’s most pop­u­lar lo­ca­tions since their first event in 1986.

“Back then there were only 26 swim­mers, but num­bers have since grown sig­nif­i­cantly and this year we ex­pect to see more mem­bers of the wider swim­ming com­mu­nity come along and en­joy this won­der­ful lo­ca­tion.”

This year Swim­ming WA has nom­i­nated the Open Wa­ter event at Lake Leschenaultia as one of its tar­geted swims.

Start times on the day will be stag­gered with the 400m novice event ( open to nine years and older) hit­ting the wa­ter first at 9.45am, fol­lowed by the main event, a 1.6km swim. To reg­is­ter, go to bit. ly/ 2y4Qel7
