So, this years Vanessa Knight Memorial Open Meet was without doubt our best yet. Despite one or two hiccups at the beginning (there always are), races ran on time, most swimmers were where they were supposed to be, and even though it was hot, hot, hot..every one had a great time.
In attendance were the Mayors of Bognor Regis, many thanks to them for coming and lending their support.
We saw some fantastic swims that day from the many clubs that attended, and thanks to them for helping to make our VK Meet such a success. Lots and lots of medals were handed out that day!!
Well done to all our own swimmers who took part that day, including Amber MacRae, Jess Gowing, Charle-Anne Yates, Molly Dance, Kaitlin Hickmore, Orla Darby, Pheobe Spurr, Poppy Boote-Cook, Anabell McMullan, Holly-Mae Vicary, Logan Hickmore, Connor Merrick, Henry MacRae, Theo Bennet, William Stevens, Alex Lawrence, Lorcan Wilson, Andy Uren, Evan Clarke, Leo Mitchell, Owen Cullen, William Pinto, Christopher Sargent, Tomass Totoris and Nathan Vicary. All our swimmers achieved new PB’s, so well done to them.
Also, congratulations to our medal winners, Molly Dance, Logan Hickmore, Kaitlin Hickmore, Jess Gowing, Amber MacRae, Leo Mitchell, Andy Uren, Evan Clarke, William Pinto, Christopher Sargent, Nathan Vicary, Tomass Totoris, Adam White and Owen Cullen. Well done to Sue Eason our head coach and Kim Hickmore, our assistant coach.
Huge thanks to the indefatigable Kim Hickmore, our club secretary who worked so hard to organise the meet, as well as being part of our coaching team. Also thanks to Martin Stone who pitched in to help with the organisation. Needless to say, it wouldn’t have gone half so well without the support and participation of all the swimmers, officials, referees , volunteers and parents, we thank you all.
Can’t wait for next years VK Meet, we hope to see you there.
