The 8th July saw Race 3 of the 2010 OWS.co.uk 2010 series in warm lakeland waters at Little Marlow.

In the 1500m event Charlie James was second woman home overall in 20.23 with Jo Davies, hot on her heels in 20.24, and Jo Eaton (21.08) finishing third and fourth respectively.

Matt Gomez finished the third male non-wetsuit swimmer in 20.15 and was fastest in his age group, wetsuit and non-wetsuit.

Andy Spencer’s much-vaunted ‘open water debut’ culminated winning the male 30-40 non-wetsuit category in 25.17; whether or not he chooses to ‘leave it all out there’ next time in the 3.8k event remains to be seen…

Liz Barker was the first female non-wetsuit swimmer to finish the challenging 3.8k course in 1.01.06, closely followed by Steve McKeever (1.01.27, 2nd non-wetsuit male, 1st 40+), Roberta Dionello (1.03.42) and Clare Vallance (1.06.27).

The fourth round of races in the series is on Thursday, 29th July, once again with races over 750m, 1500m and 3.8km. Either enter online through the site above or come along and pay on the night – the water promises to be nice and warm as do the cups of tea and coffee and burgers once you finish!
