So it seems that the majority of us have crawled back under our towels for some well deserved rest from what was a very busy swimming year for the masters.
Others are being brave and dipping their toes into the not so pool like waters of the sea with local open water races, distance week in Cork and multiple channel crossings from various individuals and teams. You cannot beat the July water reads of between 12 – 13 degrees. Mmmmm balmy…….
So as the dust has settled on the British Masters and the outstanding achievements by all who competed and naturally enough our lovely Ashling took a well deserved break after her trip over to keep log of all the great work. But not for long! She has sent some wonderful photos that she took of the few days for us which can be seen here.
I hope you are all having a wonderful summer.
After 5 days, the results are in.
5 Gold Medals
12 Silver Medals
5 Bronze Medals and 3 for individual events and 2 Relay Medals.
This is an absolutely fantastic result. Well done to everyone.
