A hugely sucessful weekend for EGTC club members!

We have a Cold Water Swimming Championships Winner in Tim Coogan plus honourable mentions for Pete Holley, Cate Warner and Tom Lees – hats off (and warm clothes on) to each of them for braving the 1.5c waters at Tooting Bec Lido on Saturday! Maybe next year we can have a team outing to cheer them on or maybe just sit in the hot tub and watch?

On Sunday there was further glory for Team EGTC at the Vale Gallop – the first event in the Winter Grand Prix 2017. First home in the Men's race was Andrew Drake with Juhanna Kirk following in 2nd. Richard Smith took 4th place as did Kat Parkin in the Ladies race with plenty of other great performances from all those who came along. Personally I thought I did exceptionally well to only have one bacon roll and coffee whilst waiting for them all to finish – maybe not such a fast time in future please Andrew? Thanks to all of you for turning up and I'll start to fill in the WGP 17 spreadsheet in due course!

Of course I will have more to add after this Saturday's WGP 1000m swim TT! You can take part in either swim session so no excuses for not taking part – beyond the usual can't be bothered/its not far enough/I don't swim early in the morning evasions that people use!

Here's a possible opportunity for anyone to be involved with helping clubmates without necessarily taking a full BTA Coaching course – if interested talk to Mr Chairman!

Finally another reminder of Race Weekend – 13/14 May 2017 plenty to do so all welcome!

Train safe
