Stewart Crowe, Coach said’ Over the course of the 3 weekends of these championships I have been extremely pleased and proud of each and every one of the Fareham Nomads swimmers. They have supported each other and put on some really gutsy swims and absolutely deserve every medal, personal best time, or top 8 place that they have achieved. Its great to see so many of our younger swimmers coming up through the ranks and competing at this level. They have overcome adversity to reach this level due to the loss of their main training pool since November and are now embarking on the challenge to build their own pool.”
