Whales Challenge #2

Last Saturday saw the 2nd Whales Challenge swum and won. Another very close event, with the lead changing a couple of times. Maroon again came back late to win Round 2 and take a 2 – 0 lead. White can (will) redeem themselves on Saturday 14th March, 2020 by winning the 3rd Whales Challenge and finishing the season on a winning note.

50 Years Ago

A photo of club races from 1970. No club room yet, a nice lawn in the area and no shade awning at the end of the pool. What about those blocks & lane ropes, not to mention the costumes and hair styles!
