Jersey swim meet
Brenda Hallpike and Jo Read represented Redhill Masters over in Jersey on the weekend of 27th to 29th September.
This was a really friendly and welcoming meet and a good crowd of like minded swimmers. Both Brenda and Jo managed to gain medals with Brenda coming home with One Gold two silver and one Bronze. Jo got two silver and two bronze.
There was a nail biting finish to Brenda's 200m backstroke where it appeared to all watching that she go the final touch over her long time rival, Christine Goodair of Kings Cormerants but when the times came up she had lost out by just 2 hundredths of a second.
After the competition there was an excellent meal at a local restaurant and many of the swimmers attended.
This would be a really good meet for our Masters to attend, especially those who like to do open water events, as these are run on the Sunday, with distances of 1km 3km and 5km.
See you all over there next year!!
