We arrived yesterday in Perth after the infamous 29-hour journey, lovely to see the beautiful city of Perth and even better to see our friends Paul, Craig, Caitlyn & Tomas. Today I completed a couple of training sessions, one on the beautifully warm Indian Ocean and then later I had a really good hour training set swim in the Bayswater Waves 50m outdoor pool. This second training session was while Sarah joined in a sqaud coached by Wayne DeLacy – Thanks Wayne – Great guy! who looked after Sarah and improved her breaststroke breathing.
Tomorrow we’re off to Rottness Island, which is approximately 20k from Perth, Dave who has won the Rottness Race – from Rottness to Perth, swims with Wayne too, and hope to have a crack at the English channel too. Dave you will be very welcome in the UK, drop me a line when you’re coming over to the UK and I’ll introduce you to Freda and the Dover beach crew!
I did consider a training swim back from Rottness tomorrow, but have been reliably informed that a support boat is compulsory and Christine’s made some comment about this is a holiday not a training camp!
Update again before Adelaide!
