At the State Short Course Championships in Woy Woy, Peter Kellaway came away with two Gold Medals, Leon Bobako two Gold and a Silver, and Chris Lock, despite a damaged knee came away with one Gold and two Bronze.

The Woy Woy event followed on from the Warringah Masters Swim meet in Sydney which saw Myall Masters members both compete and undertake marshalling training.

“Leon was a fantastic ambassador, entering four events of which he gained three firsts and one second place, finishing the meet first overall in his age group,” Valerie Mobbs said.

Members of the Myall Masters Swimming Club are also in training mode ahead of this year’s second annual Jimmy’s Beach Open Water Swim in Hawks Nest.

You don’t have to be a member to enter the 1.5 kilometre memorial swim, named in honour of the late Chris ‘Mobbsy’ Mobbs or the 600 metre swim.

“Entry costs $30 per swimmer,” Valerie said.

“You’ll receive a swim cap, certificate of recognition, water and refreshments at the end of your swim and lunch at the Surf Club.”

To enter head to or contact Chris Lock on 042 999 018.

Entries for the marathon on Sunday 11 November close on 4 November.
