Barracudas hard at work for Chan­nel swim

Cockburn Gazette - - SPORT -

BARRACUDAS Swim­ming Club mem­ber Jack Beat­tie (15) says his goal is to beat last year’s team in the English Chan­nel Swim.

The Church­lands Se­nior High School club will take on the Chan­nel in two re­lay teams this July.

Jack said the teams were train­ing at the Church­lands pool up to seven days a week.

“We are pretty ex­cited be­cause it is not long now; it’s at the end of July,” Jack said.

“We are all in good shape for the swim.

“My goal is to beat the team from last year.”

Jack said con­di­tions were look­ing good for the swim, with a flat tide pre­dicted for the swim from Eng­land to France.

The club is look­ing for spon­sors.
