Swimmers Trophy

Swimmer of the Moment Trophy Award

The Trophy was introduced, and made, by Barry I in March 2020 to commemorate the daring deeds and failed strokes of the Bramston Canoe Club community. Here we will see a pictorial history of the brave men and women who have taken the plunge in pursuit of kayaking perfection.

Congratulations Andy. Awarded for swimming in placid surf off of Angle Bay, Pembrokshire. In fairness this trophy did pass to several different people throughout the week (11 – 20 Sept),but Andy was the ultimate winner, despite protestations. There is photographic evidence of the backstroke clearly being deployed before an unceremonious exit from his kayak. September 2020.
