Carpenter-Warren swims to Fairway hat-trick
PUBLISHED: 08:34 21 July 2011
Cameron Carpenter-Warren won the 2011 Exmouth Swimming and Life Saving Society's Starcross swim, writes Ian Lang.
What’s more it was the third consecutive time that Carpenter-Warren has won the event.
He completed the 1.75 mile tidally assisted swim in a time of 32.31, beating another former winner of the race, Olly White, into second place. Liam Spiller had a very impressive swim to claim third place and win the junior competition in a time of 33.55.
Last year’s junior winner George Cornwell-Brown finished eight overall in a time of 35.43 the inaugural junior ladies competition was won by Rachel Strickland in a time of 37.29 with Isabel Mitchell also swimming in a time of 40.19 and it is encouraging to see some of the club’s junior swimmers starting to gain experience in the open water; which is a discipline the club has a good history in.
All 17 starters finished the swim with swimmers using the swim as additional training or competition whilst others take on the swim as a personal challenge and aim to finish the course.
Exmouth Beach Rescue was once again able to provide a large number of kayakers to assist the swim as well as providing safety boat cover. Without their help the swim would not have gone ahead. Exmouth Swimming and Life Saving Society wish to thank beach rescue, all other boat crews, kayakers and officials whose assistance was greatly appreciated on the night.
