Harbour Swim Club Holds Championships Event

December 15, 2016

At its recent Club Championships, Harbour Swim Club turned out in force with over 120 swimmers, setting a number of personal best times.

Head Coach Shona Palmer said, “The Club Championships have been an outstanding way to end the first part of our race season. The swimmers have delivered some strong results prior to Christmas and, with hard work over the Christmas period, 2017 promises to be a great year for Harbour Swimmers.”

Club President Stephen Castree said, “Our commitment to building a larger pool of junior swimmers by offering training 7 days a week is translating into some outstanding junior and senior swims, and, as the juniors move through the senior ranks, we anticipate our numbers increasing further.

“With local and overseas national records held by club members, we are looking forward to a bright future for Harbour.”

A spokesperson said, “As well as all club members participating in a cross section races, the meet also offered the opportunity for the youngest to experience racing for the first time in a kicking race and afforded those non-Harbour members to participate for record setting of qualification purposes.

“Sam Williamson of the Sharks swimming club, coached by Ben Smith, took full advantage. Sam posted a time of 33.03 seconds in the boys 50m Breaststroke in the morning, dropping to a time of 32.84 seconds in the evening.

“This made Williamson the fastest ever 12 year old in the UK as at December 31, smashing the previous record of 33.24 seconds set in 2001.

“The club goes into its Christmas period with training continuing and a good mix of swimming, land work, beach work and some inspirational presentations are prepared for the Christmas period.

“The future certainly seems bright for Harbour and the club continues to expand its coaching base and its membership as it looks growth into 2017 and beyond.

“All those interested should contact Ally Harvey at acam@logic.bm to reserve their try-out slot and prepare to join the most exciting aquatics programme on the island.”
