We are delighted to announce that we have another new member on our coaching staff. Coach Bella Ferriter has a wonderful background in aquatics as an age group swimmer and even a season as a college swimmer and diver. She also has about 11 years of coaching under her belt, having coached age group swimmers, Masters swimmers and open water swimmers. She is one heck of a stand up paddle boarder and we are hoping for some SUP lessons and social activities centered around paddle boarding with her!

Bella will be filling in at all the pools, and you’ll meet her soon as she makes the rounds of our four workout groups. Her smile and warm personality is infectious! You can read more about Bella and her background on our Coaches page. Welcome aboard Bella! We are so glad to have you on our team.

Congratulations to David Rosenfeld, Claudia Thompson, Jane Piombo and Ed Carr. Results will show at the bottom of this attachment below and here are a few pics from Facebook.

5 Swymnuts took to the open water for the 2016 RCP Tiburon Mile. Three did it in wetsuits and two in regular suits. Congratulations to all of them for some great swims in tougher conditions this year. Apparently there was some stronger currents, a little more chop and rolling waves. Even the elites were slower this year.

Results are here:

We are proud to announce that our very own Mike Providenza has joined the coaching staff at Swymnuts. Mike will be filling in at all the pools, initially giving Buffy some relief at Lucas Valley. Mike has a great way with people and a lifetime background in aquatics. He comes from a long history around the water – all of his family swims and plays water polo and he has been lifeguarding for many years. You can read more about Mike and his background on our Coaches page. Welcome aboard Mike! We are so happy to have you with us.

Mike in action!

The fearsome foursome of Giovanni, Sue, Nance and Ken took on Lake Tahoe on August 29th. They all did GREAT coming in within a few minutes of each other. Way to go you crazy NUTS!

Here are their results. Hoping to get some pictures from them for this post. 🙂

Claudia Hermann continued her training for her September Waikiki Roughwater swim by traveling to Manhattan to swim the Dwight Crum Pier-to-Pier swim on August 7th. This is one determined lady! Great job Claudia

Update – The 2.4 mile 2016 Waikiki Roughwater swim of September 4th was aptly named. The island had just been hit by a hurricane and the waters were exceptionally rough this year with eddies and riptides. Claudia did start the swim and was about 1.1 miles in when she was pulled from the water. Initially very disappointed, she came to learn that about 300 others were pulled from the water because the conditions became too dangerous. So bummed that you trained for this for a year but we sure are glad you are okay. Sometimes Mother Nature is quite unkind. Despite what happened, Claudia said she learned a lot about dealing with these kinds of conditions for her time in the water on this swim. That’s the spirit Claudia!
