Mr Philip Yorke
(FOR THE 2013 SEASON)
Philip Yorke took part in 8 events and completed 39.38 miles. Despite swimming breaststroke Philips abilities and determination saw him finish 8th in the published list of the senior Grand Prix. He is a constant larger than life character and always finds time to speak to swimmers of all abilities. He took part in a channel swim in 2013 as part of a relay team. He received the Bedford trophy for Windermere (Last Man Home) and swam at the Budworth Mere Championships and City of Liverpool events.
