On Sunday, October 12th, the Sharks Swim Club turned the focus to open water swimming, as they hosted the ever-popular Trunk Island Swim. The race was won by two Sharks swimmers, with Nicholas Patterson taking the Men’s title, and Sophie Froud won the Ladies.
99 swimmers braved choppy water conditions, as a result of a stiff, prevailing north-east breeze in order to complete the 1,325 meter event; swimming from the jetty on Trunk Island into the Palmetto Bay.
Patterson’s winning time was 17:44, with Kevin Insley finishing second in 17:54 and Nick Strong was third in 18:09. Thirteen year old Tyler Smith finished 4th with a time of 18:56.
Froud finished 11th overall with a time of 19:48, while Bridgett Telenko (Brynn’s mum) finished 15th overall and second female finisher with a time of 20.06. Somer Froud was 16th overall and the third female finisher with a time of 20:12.

This meet will be ‘Open’ – this means that there is no differentiation between age and everyone swims against everyone else based on their entry times. The distances are relatively long and the purpose of this meet is to prepare the swimmers for the Mailboxes Unlimited Winter Age Group Championships (taking place over the weekend of Dec 2 – 4).

The first swim meet of the new season is the Sharks Sprint Meet to be held on Saturday, October 8, 2011 at BASA pool. Please note that the meets starts at 8:30 am.
As the meet name suggests, all events are short (longest event is 100m), so we would like to see as many Sharks swimmers taking part as possible. The meet also includes relays – your coach will select relay teams (all swimmers should expect to swim in at least one relay). There is also a special parent/child relay event over 50 meters – child and parent swim 25m each. We would like to see lots of Sharks parents enter this event with their children.
Entry deadline is Wednesday, September 28 – swimmers, please let your coach know that you will be swimming and discuss which events you will be entering.
