The London Classic Swim Serpentine

Sun 17/Sep/2017

Congratulation to Matt and Steve from Masters Squad who swam in the Swim Serpentine 2 mile event at the weekend; one of the three London Classics events. With the temperature at a cold 15C and a land start, so no acclimatisation, the boys raced twice around the London 2012 Olympic course in Hyde Park. Thankfully nice warm hot tubs were laid on for swimmers to warm up afterwards; and as one lady was actually blue coloured in the face, they were a welcome treat. Matt won his age group from 190 swimmers in 40 minutes 12 seconds. Steve was 2nd in his age group from 278 swimmers in 46 minutes 23 seconds. From the 937 male entries of all ages, Matt was second by just 6 six seconds and Steve was 14th. Steve also caught a Well Done tweet from TeamGB Olympic Silver Medallist and double World Champion Keri-Anne Payne.

Captain's Gala

Wed 13/Sep/2017

On Monday evening our home pool at The Walnuts hosted the annual Captain's Gala. Every swimmer who enters is placed in a team headed by our new Captains. We had Lilli's Leafy Sea Dragons, Langdown's Lobsters, Strover's Stars and Nam's Clams. The races were all non-ASA approved relays with each race featuring all the swimmers. There was the T-Shirt relay which isn't easy swapping the wet T-Shirt between swimmers at the end of each race, the water polo relay among others and ending up with the massive tandem relay at the end with everyone swimming at once. Thanks to our Captain's and Sergio for providing a great night of fun for all.

Notices

The Meet Manager/Promoter for this event is Nick Hallam A swimmer's age shall be determined as at midnight on December 31st 2017. Qualifying entry times must have been achieved on or subsequent to October 12th 2016. Masters times, registered with the Swim England Rankings database, which meet/exceed the published qualifying times and conditions, will be accepted. Competitors seeking to enter using these times should do so using the manual Individual Entry Form. IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE MEET CONDITIONS, WITHDRAWALS MUST BE SUBMITTED ONLINE (EMAIL) TO THE MEET MANAGER BY 10AM ON THE DAY BEFORE THE START OF THIS COMPETITION OR ELSE MUST BE COMPLETED POOLSIDE AND SUBMITTED NO LATER THAN THE PUBLISHED TIMES FOR EACH SESSION
For those that missed it last year, the county had some major changes to the format last year, which we were very successful. The only major change is changing to Age at year end rather than end of meet. Their aim is to encourage more entrants, and give more swimmers a chance to win a Kent Medal. As the title says it is a development meet, so county qualifiers can't enter swims for which they have obtained a championship's 2017 consideration time. Note they can enter events that they have not achieved times for. Also we have added a points table to enable selection for the Kent Development Camp in 2018. (See conditions for full details). To help spread entries swimmers can enter a maximum of 6 events. There are also relay events for 2 age groups, with mixed and individual gender events. Note the conditions that restrict entries by Kent championships qualifiers to strokes they haven't qualified for.
