I started open water swimming in 2010 and since then I have done quite a few swims including an English Channel solo, Round Jersey solo and a 2 Way Windermere. I have taken part in many of the BLDSA swims including Windermere, Champion of Champions, Derwentwater, 2 way Bala and Colwick Park. My aim is to complete the full set of BLDSA swims, although I still have a little way to go there. I am a member of the Masters squad at Basingstoke Bluefins Swimming Club, and I occasionally compete in Masters competitions, although my preference is for the freedom of the open water.
Please feel free to get in touch with me if you are looking to obtain recognition from the BLDSA for either a solo or a relay swim and I will be happy to guide you through the process.
