    The early rain clouds cleared to provide a beautiful sunny Sunday morning for the annual gala at Tooting Bec Lido.  Over thirty "Serpentinies" turned out to achieve a glorious second.  Team Serpentine was once again super efficiently marshalled and whipped into place by our club captain, Deirdre Ward.

    This was the last chance to swim at the Bec before its' nine months closure for refurbishment.  Will many venture north of the river to continue their early morning fix before it reopens?

    The Emmi Hunte series is raced between February and October over varying distances -  February 55 yards (50m), March 110 yards (100m), August 880 yards (800m) with the final 100 yard (90m) race held in late October.   The first race of the 2022 series fell victim to the aftermath of the previous day's "Storm Eunice" -  the park did not open until 09.30 to allow a clear-up of debris.   Brian Thomas won the cup based on aggregate performance over the three races.
