1/2 February 2014 at K2, Crawley
January disappears into the rear view mirror and Masters swimmers emerge blinking into the light from their winter hibernation, and in the South East over the weekend of 1-2 February it’s the first long course (50m pool) meet of the year at the SE Regional Championships at K2 in Crawley.
I was worried that I wouldn’t have anything to keep me occupied on the weekend of 18th/19th January so had decided some while ago to enter back to back marathons ie one on Saturday and the same again on Sunday. Mark had done the same and thus with two others in the car we set off for the Viking Coastal Marathon (Day One) at Minnis Bay.
The Box Hill Fell race is the only official fell race in the south of England and having personally done several in the Lake District equally as tough, although if you decide to retire being in Surry it’s only a short walk to the nearest Cappuccino bar instead of being choppered away by mountain rescue.
Can be found here. Please note that we start at 6pm on Sunday.
We've had reports that the chlorine level was very strong on Friday evening. This has been reported to the School who haven't got an explanation for it although confirm it's been fine since. Any similar complaints will be passed on to the School.

My 20,013 – a year to remember, a year not to repeat…ever again
By Huw Howell
For reasons that I can’t really explain I somehow pedalled 20,013 km in 2013, thankfully not a single km was anywhere close to being on a turbo, which isn’t actually proper cycling.
Please note that when a Sunday session is going to start at 18.00 it will be stated in the Club Diary. If nothing is mentioned it will be a normal 17.30 start. It will be helpful if swimmers can be poolside and ready to start sessions at the allotted time. Last Sunday a large number appeared to arrive late. Thanks.
In the Wesley Room at The Drive Methodist Church in Sevenoaks starting at 19.45. An informal evening with plenty of chat, questions and answers. This is in the Church building and not the hall where the turbo session is held.

It’s 09:59 on Friday the 13th 2013. It is raining and I am sat on the pontoon on the Serpentine, Hyde Park, London. To make the start line has been a big achievement. For the past two years I have been trying unsuccessfully to sort out a hamstring injury. Ten weeks ago I decided to stop resting as it wasn’t helping. So I am here, with no expectations.
