Shepperton Race 1 - 1500m

Race Date: Thursday, 07/06/2018
Race Distance: Swim - 1.5 Km

Eight Windmilers enjoyed the first Shepperton Open Water Races of the season! Being warm but overcast this was perfect as you do not then get blinded at all during the swim - not ideal for sighting! The water was a positively balmy 20C! Kate Newton was first Windmiler out of the water with an excellent sub - 15 minute swim. In the 1500m, Ironman David Sharman expectedly led the way ahead of Andrea Biondi, Tara Ryan, Julian Ward (non-wetsuit) and Melloney Johns. In the 3000m, Tom O'Donohue and Pete Metcalf both performed creditably but once again the star was Laura James picking up 2nd place lady. She was slacking it though, a full one second behind her PB, and a full six minutes behind the awesome leading lady (and overall winner). Pictures on Windmiler swimming FB page and WhatsApp group.
