As the 2014 Norfolk County Championships draw to an end, we must congratulate all the Great Yarmouth swimmers for their tremendous achievements. There will be a slight delay (about a week) in publishing the last weekends results and updating the PB list but the results from the first round showed some outstanding swims with a huge number of PB's. In congratulating the swimmers we must also congratulate the team of G.Y.S.C coaches that have put in a tremendous effort and helped ensure this level of success.

Club History from California »

Ken Mason, a resident of California U.S.A. has sent the club a family heirloom. A newspaper article from 1897, it describes a swimming race involving his grandfather which was held in the sea in June 1897. Paola Moore the Club Chairman said "it is incredibly generous of Ken and his family to let us have this lovely item, it will really help us pass on our rich heritage to the current generation". The club will be displaying the article in the Phoenix trophy cabinet just as soon as it has taken advice on how best to preserve it.
