Finally found a minute or two to whip through the latest News - apologies for the delay to those of you for whom this is a highlight of your week, you really should get out more often?

Because it’s late I missed telling you about Val McLaren competing in the European Masters Swim Championships in London this week! She’s already competed in the 200m freestyle on Thursday and has the 400m to do on Saturday - simply awesome and an example to all of us? Also this weekend, Kat Parkin and Annie Sidgwick are at the European Triathlon Championships in Lisbon - good luck to both of them and you can follow their progress on the ITU website.

Not sure if any of you are at the 2km Challenge Swim at Weirwood tonight but hope it goes well if you are - the water is lovely and warm! Which brings me on to the Monday 6th June coached session at 6.30pm. Martin and the team are planning a special session aimed at beginners to develop specific skills and improve confidence in open water. Coaching is free but you will need to pay the annual £10 joining fee plus £6 for your swim to Aldo on arrival. Please remember your wetsuit, brightly coloured swim hat and some flip flops or similar to walk to/from the jetty. Hot showers and tea/coffee available afterwards! A session for intermediate/advanced swimmers will be held on Monday 4th July.

The 2nd Sunday Club Ride in June would be on Sunday 12th however its Mid Sussex Tri that day and I know many of you will be there - maybe those who aren’t might want to ride over to offer “support”? Let me know and we’ll see what we can arrange?

That’s it for this week - train safe
