National Arena League Round 1 (Posted on Sunday, 19 October 2014)
October saw the first round of the National Arena League where each Club’s fastest swimmers compete in this prestigious team event. Once again our team of 32 swimmers stood up to the high standard of the competition swimming incredibly well achieving many personal bests.

The competition was really strong and Orpington Ojays gave it their best in and out of the pool where they swam strong and cheered loudly alongside our supportive parents. After a closely fought event Ojays managed to achieve 4th place overall securing 8 third places, 7 second places and, to top it all 2 first places thanks to Callum Baronti’s great butterfly race and our team of 11yr boys freestyle relay team composed of Eddie Sellar, Max Peel, Justin Strover and Callum Baronti.

Other great swims were delivered by: Justin Strover, James Waller, Michael Phillips, George Fisher, Jake McDonnell, Oliver Randall, Ben Strover ,Louis Goff, James Lawrence, Mike Bond, James May, Jamie Van Rooyen, Jessica Herbert, Matilda Barrett, Alice Bennett, Emily Smith, Anna Cvjetan, Clio Bacon, Niamh Laker, Jessica Sellar, Amy Jeffreys, Katie Napier, Daniella Shipley, Jessica Page , Lizzie Bennett, Chloe Ashley and Kate Ridley
A big thank you also goes to all coaches, parents, officials and helpers who supported this event and make it as successful and fun as it was.
Racing through the night (Posted on Tuesday, 14 October 2014)
Masters Matt Steere, Ben Cockburn & Niki Herbert entered the first UK Night Swimming Event. Held in the dark at Bray Lake, Maidenhead last Saturday night they spent some time as the sun set contemplating why they were about to swim in the dark. Having clipped a glow stick to their goggle elastic they went to the start area & looked for a course with 4 buoys dimly lit with more glow sticks. At 7.30pm 150 swimmers set off for either one lap of 750m or two for 1500m, the Ojays swimmers were all doing the 1500m.

Spectators got to see glow sticks wavering along the water as the swimmers set off! Matt quickly got towards the front & having lost his glow stick nearly tipped over a canoeist that hadn't seen him coming and had to negotiate a course he couldn't see. Ben & Niki had an easier swim being able to see a line of glow sticks from faster swimmers marking out the course.

Matt finished 1st in 19.06, Ben was 13th in 23.50 & Niki 36th in 26.30. The swim was organised by a company called Brutal Events - very apt!
John Carrie (Posted on Friday, 10 October 2014)
It is very sad to report on the death of John Carrie at the start of the week.

John Carrie was a lovely man. He was a prominent figure in the world of swimming, always giving his time to help swimmers and officials. Many people within swimming often used John as an expert point of reference and he never failed to give the correct answer. He was a larger than life character and even as his health deteriorated he still managed to help at many events. He will be sadly missed by all but will always be remembered. Swimming has lost one of its true heroes.
