Last Saturday's race would have been for the Cyril & Yvonne Wood cup. Cyril was handicapper in the early 2000s and introduced a "scientific" element to handicapping by using a tape recorder to log race progress in real-time. Yvonne would swim before each Saturday's race, changing swiftly to then assist Cyril as a judge. They were members of both the Serpentine and South London swimming clubs. On Christmas morning Cyril would race in the Serpentine at nine o'clock, then move on to Tooting Bec to take part in their race at eleven. Cyril was club President, 1995-98. He won the Peter Pan Cup in 2000.
