Cyril Wood passes the baton

Fuller scares himself to victory

This was the first of the Winter Series of races.  Andrew Fuller very unwisely swam his very fastest, and won by a clear margin in his race (see below). 
When asked why, he said that he thought someone was catching him up, but realised near the finish that it was the splash from his own legs!! 
Newcomer Pippa Durrant was also unwise to swim her best to win her race!

This was the last time that Cyril Wood was in charge of the handicapping, as he is standing down. 
Everyone is very appreciative of his efforts, however much they might complain.
