29 swimmers took part, ranging in age from 8-12, with some of them this being their first open meet, they all gained valuable racing experience producing excellent swims, in total 78 medals were won, comprising of 21 Gold, 27 Silver and 30 Bronze and a huge total of 97 PB’s
Over 25 Paignton swimmers took part in the recent meet at Trinity School pool – the new home of Dawlish Swimming Club. This was a fantastic opportunity for first-time racers, as well as for more experienced swimmers to get back into competition. The huge number of PBs achieved is a result of the hard work done since we returned to training in April.

Finally, after nearly 16 long months, last week saw a return to competition for Flo, Emily and Nathan in our platinum squad, as they qualified for and competed at the Festival of Swimming at the newly reopened Plymouth Life Centre.
It was a tough first meet back, being both long course and with fierce competition from across the whole of Devon and Cornwall, but all three swam admirably, Flo and Nathan each picking up a first place finish and all achieving excellent times.
But most importantly, it was great to see them smiling, enjoying themselves back where they belong on the starting blocks and regaining that racing buzz! As Flo commented at the end of the long day, it makes you remember what it is you are doing all the training for!
