Swimmers brave cold
RECENTLY the Whitsunday Masters Swimming Club held its annual general meeting. The club is happy to have Bob Corskie, Rob McKay, Cheryl West and Freya Hill continue in their executive roles.
There has been a huge increase in participation in training over winter.
Coach, Mark Erickson said it was great to see so many adults continue to train throughout the year and not stop over winter.
On Sunday morning, eight swimmers complet- ed a timed 1500m swim for the Endurance 1000 program.
All of the swimmers completed the swim in less than 38 minutes.
Most of the swimmers also completed a 30 minute swim challenge a month earlier.
Next Saturday evening, the club will be celebrating Christmas in July in Bloomsbury.
The Whitsunday Masters Swim Club would like to wish young gun, Bernard Laverty all the best at the Gardens Meet in Townsville during early August.
TRAINING UP: Masters swimmers Lyn Burke, Cheryl West, Dave Roberts, Rob McKay, Aimee Mitchell, Vicki Stubbs, Andrea Mitchell, Raylene Rasmussen, Margaret Cunningham and Freya Hill enjoyed Sunday morning smoko after training.
