Open Water Swim Silver Medallist
Harley West of 7W2 competed in his first Regional/County Open Water event at Whitlingham Outdoor Centre in Norwich last weekend.
He swam in the 800m where he finished in 11 minutes, 17 seconds, officially ranking 5th in the East Region and 2nd in Essex County.
Open water can be used to describe rivers, lakes, natural pools and the sea. To enjoy the activity safely, you need to check out local knowledge and advice (speak to clubs) - there’s a big difference between swimming in a pool and swimming outdoors!
