A number of the COSC Masters squad made their way the short distance down the M40 to Little Marlow for the second round of races in the OWS.co.uk 2010 series on the 17th June.
Conditions in the lake were good for some quick times with warm(ish) water and little wind. Only the setting sun made sighting the finish somewhat of a challenge!
Bobby Oag started the evening by winning the 750m race by over a minute, finishing in 10.17.  In the 1500m event, Tom Perchard put in a strong swim to finish 3rd male in 19.21 with Simon Joyce 6th in 19.44 and Matt Gomez 10th in 20.20.
Full results can be found here http://www.openwaterswim.co.uk/ by following the links in the 'Race Results' section.
The next evening in the series is on Thursday, 8th July with races over 750m, 1500m and 3.8km. So if you fancy some friendly, low-key open water competition in a clear, clean lake (wetsuit and non-wetsuit are welcome), either enter online through the site above or come along and pay on the night.
