Swimmers make waves in Mollymook ocean swim

Tim Booth and Tim Mather swam in the Mollymook ocean swim on Saturday 11 April achieving excellent times of 36.35 and 41.16 for the 2km course. Here’s what they had to say:

The conditions were ideal with about 150 swimmers participating, water a warm 21 degrees. The race commenced with a challenging dash of 400m east through a 1 metre surf break before heading south. With a slight north easterly current running the body felt like it was running free through the water after the first turning buoy. There was a slight swell which generated a little queasiness in some swimmers on this leg which disappeared after the next buoy and the course headed slightly more to the south east across the current. The final turn released all for a final sprint of 250m to the shore. Unfortunately my legs decided it was time for a session of cramp so after exiting the water my sprint to the line was more of a limping stagger but otherwise a great day was had by all. The organisers did a great job and I would thoroughly recommend the club organise a group to go next year.

Thanks Tim for your great report.

Inter club meet highlights strong results

Seventeen members competed in the inter club meet at Tuggeranong Lakeside Leisure Centre on Sunday 15 March. Seven women and 10 men with ages ranging from 27 (Megan Beven) to 82 (Geoff Llewellyn) took part.
Just two more men and one more woman would have seen us able to field two extra relay teams each of which score double points.
Nevertheless the Molonglo team performed very creditably scoring 649 points to Tuggeranong Viking 1192 points from 48 swimmers. The Molonglo men just missed out on outscoring their opponents with 396 points to the Vikings 407.
