Despite the threat of thunderstorms on 3rd July the Flitwick Dolphins Open Water Event at Box End was able to go ahead. Swimmers were able to complete either a 800 or 1600metre swim. For some swimmers, it was their first competitive open water swim.

Every swimmer can be really proud of what they achieved, as everyone managed to complete the trial. The fastest female swimmers were: 1600m- Francesca Baber and 800m – Neve Jones. Alistair Shaw was the fastest male (1600m) and Daniel De Filippo was the fastest male in the 800m event.

Following the swim, swimmers took advantage of the Aqua Park facility at Box End to test out their water skills further. Well done to everyone!
