George Cornwell-Brown won the 17-18 years 3000m event in a time of 41.10.54 to become regional champion and qualify for the ASA Age Group National Open Water Championships in August.

In the 1500m competition Exmouth had a number of junior swimmers. Toby Gilbody came 13th overall and did well enough in his age group to also qualify for the Nationals. Other notable swims in the 1500m came from Joe Schunck who won silver in his age group, Sophie Spiller who also won silver and Jasmine Simpson-Currie who was third in her age group. Martin Sprigmore and Martin Brown also swam the 1500m and finished in 20th and 21st place overall respectively.

In the other distances Heidi Schunck won a silver medal in the 750m event whilst Kiera Jordan finished 10th and Aidan Spiller finished fourth in their respective 2000m competitions.

Many of the swimmers are now looking forward to the club’s Starcross swim and the Devon ASA open water championships which are to be held later in the summer.
