Adult Masters
I started swimming lessons at RSC aged 5 (and believe it or not some of my teachers are still teaching and coaching today at Ryedale). I then progressed through the Club and was Swim Captain in the 1990s! I then returned to the Club 10 years ago to coach the competition section. However, my real passion for swimming is now in open water competition. This started 8 years ago to raise money for charity and I now have the bug. Hopefully health permitting I will try to do Windermere end to end in 2017. Back at RSC I started the Adult Masters section in January 2016 and this is going from strength to strength. But there is nothing quite like a Friday night Competition coaching session with a bunch of swimmers who have been caged all week at school!

After swimming and coaching it doesn’t leave much time for my other hobbies of running, hockey, photography and looking after my hound. If only I could find a sport to combine all things outdoors!
