A reminder about this weekend's events and a massive win for Kate!

Dear Swimmers

Hope you had a great weekend. We look set for a lovely bit of weather this week, albeit chilly mornings. The pool is lovely and warm to swim in at the moment though, so don't let that deter you - it's a very short leap of faith from the changing "hut" to the lovely warm water!!

Here's my little guy getting in some winter practice in his pool ready to join you guys in the squad next summer:

Kate wins IM Korea!!

Big news this weekend is that Kate Bevilaqua won Ironman Korea in a time of 9hrs 40 minutes in blistering / humid heat. This is a tremendous win for Kate and by all accounts from Guy she had a stomping swim too. Well done Kate - we're very proud of you! Make sure you check her Blog out on Wednesday at for full details.

Friday Night is Mouse Night!!

Finally, I have tickets available for $20 each to participate in an awesome evening of fun at the Claremont Footy Club on Friday 8th July, called the "Running of the Mice!". Full details can be found at: but essentially it's an evening of fun and frivolity watching trained mice race against each other over  a set course. We have been informed that the mice have given their willing consent and that the whole affair is in good taste and does not stress the mice out in anyway.

We'll also have loads of prizes and some cheap pizza and drinks available all night. If you have anything you'd like to donate as a prize, please email Ceinwen at

We're looking to get 300+ people along, so by all means please tell as many people as you can!!

Hope to see some of you there!

Sunday 7.30am 10KM Relay Challenge!

Our final charity bid will take place this Sunday morning at Claremont Pool on Davies Road between 7.30am and 10.30am where 6 teams of between 2 and 8 people have registered to take on the eight English Channel candidates over 10km in the pool. 

If you're still keen on a swim, shoot me a quick email in reply to this Blog and we might be able to get you in on one of the teams.

We're also seeking a compere / referee for the morning who wouldn't minding getting on the PA system and chivvying everyone up a bit. Normally I'd be doing this, but I'll have my head firmly under water trying to beat the teams! If anyone's keen, this would be a massive, massive help. Please let me know!
