Good luck to all our swimmers competing at Cumbernauld over this coming weekend (Go Team Larkhall !!) and a special mention good luck wish to Jamie McMurtrie who will be competing in the Scottish National Open Water Swimming Championships with a 2Km swim at Loch Venacher on Saturday.

Please speak to your coach if you are interested and BEFORE you register. Open Water Swimming is great fun, but it is recommended you take advice and should have participated in some practice swims beforehand. You will also need a wetsuit per current FINA rules for OWS in Scotland. For more details talk to Will McMurtrie (parent/masters swimmer) or Jamie McMurtrie (swimmer). There is also a fun Challenge day on Sunday 19th which is also open for registration, so if you fancy trying open water swimming please review that event instead.
