Winter Swimmers

Participation in the Auckland Winter Swimming championships has meant rigorous training and a full programme throughout the winter for the members of the Comet Swimming Club who are taking part. The warmer pools of several of the hotels and motels have been put at the disposal of the club, allowing a set programme to be pursued.


Members of the team pictured in the pool at the Sandown Park Hotel are, from left, in front, Tom Grinson, Tony Thorpe, Martin Weeks, Raewyn Meade, Susan McLennon, Lyn Anderson, and Wendy and Lyn Nyenhuis. At back, Michael Fromont, Peter Thorpe, Peter Zame, Laurence Hocquard, Mack Tamatea, Alan Thompson and James Peters. Absent: Karen Raggett, Wendy Brodie and Mark Peters.


Promising young breast-stroker, under nine years, is Martin Weeks, who practices enthusiastically.


Plenty of yardage has been churned out in the pools used.
