100 x 100

Sunday April 30 saw the return of the popular Yarra Roughies 100 x 100m event at Fitzroy Pool.  With a sellout field of 60 swimmers, the weather could not have been more glorious, if a little chilly at the start.  

Congratulations to all swimmers for your achieving whatever goal you set yourselves for the event!

MS MegaSwim – February 2023

We had a great team atmosphere at a brilliant event yet again for Mega Swim.  The team has so far raised over $12,000 for people living with MS. One of our team members alone, raised over $3600. 

Lorne Pier to Pub Swim – 2023

It was fantastic to be back at Lorne this year after two cancelled events due to COVID.  In stunning weather, a group of Roughies across various age groups enjoyed a fantastic day of swimming.  Our sun shelter and pink Roughies flag enabled our members and friends to find us and gather for the day.

MSV Short Course Relay Championships – 2022

As one of the smallest Victorian masters clubs, we are in Division 4 (divisions based on membership). We came a very close second in our division, and beat a number of teams in higher divisions on points, placing 9th overall of 15 clubs.

From 18 races we had:

  • 3 first places
  • 6 second places
  • 2 third places
  • 0 DQs (Disqualification)
  • 1 DNS (Did not start) – don’t ask – at least we learnt from it!
  • 17 events (that is, all) swam faster than entry time.

Thank you to all who participated and also those who helped us fulfil our timekeeping obligation.
