Day 6


A great day again today, lovely sunshine and some great swimming.

We had a 2.5 hour morning session and land training was on the beach which culminated in the ‘camp challenge’ – all members of the camp (including the coaches) ran into the freezing cold sea and dived under the water, luckily there is no photographic evidence so you have to take our word for it.

This afternoon we finished the session with relays, we had 3 teams swimming 10 x 50m relays on all strokes and a medley relay. Racing was exciting and close and great to see some of the younger swimmers storming all the races, particularly the Fly. Sam’s team won with Tom and Lois finishing joint second.

We had our final camp meeting tonight saying a big thanks to all the adult helpers – Louise, Linda, Dave, LIz, Mike and Luke – The swimmers surprised Alan by giving him a tea Mug from Venice – they obviously know all coaches are powered by tea and cake.

Tomorrow we have two 2.5 hour sessions and the journey home starts, we are planning Land Training on the beach followed by a picnic lunch.
