20th September 2014
The first time an open water event has ever been held at this privately owned lake. Part of the entry fees were being donated to help the sailing club to complete their new club house which was under construction. Despite a large amount of weeds over quite a lot of the 1500m circuit, it didn’t put many swimmers off. The event was well attended with a couple of young open water European medallists, hence there were some fast times recorded. There were 3 distances available 1.5k, 3k and 6k. Six Gloucester Masters Swimmers attended all competing in the 6k distance.
OLIVER WILKINSON (non wetsuit) 2nd Male of all age groups and 3rd competitor to complete the course (1:19.20)
STEVE TAYLOR 4th Male of all age groups and over all 6th competitor to finish (1:25.49)
ANGELA WADLEY 4th Female of all age groups and 9th overall to finish (1:39.32)
