Final season points.

In holding the prizegiving straight after the final competition swim, some certificates weren’t quite right. If you need a corrected certificate, please email Jon Linyard at and he’ll do a corrected version for you to pick up next Thursday. If you’re not sure exactly how you finished up, check the final season points table (above).

If you plan to swim in next week’s handicap race, please email Jon so he can sort a handicap for you.

Does anyone have a women’s wetsuit (S/M) for sale? Please email
