The water temperature at the Cobar Memorial Swimming Pool was a pleasant 21 degrees for the Cobar Yabbies Senior Men’s Swimming Club’s first dip of the 2019/2020 season on Tuesday night.
Founding club member Bob Clark started the season off on the right foot with a first up win in the 30 metres handicap freestyle swim.
Clark finished within 0.17 seconds of his nominated time to win from Murray Harland (0.65) and Greg Aird was third on 1.58.
Mark Fenton finished out in front in the 50m swim with a time of 0.50 seconds off his nominated time.
Harland was once again in second spot on 0.66 and John Carswell cruised into third place with 1.25 seconds off his nominated time.
The cool down (or warm up) final event of the night was the brace relay which required teams of two to walk across the heated hydro pool. Fenton and Harland finished within 0.80 seconds of their nominated time to easily win from Aird and Carswell (2.59).
