We celebrated our annual summer party at Zum Straba on the Alte Donau. To warm-up for the strenuous eating and drinking, a few of us swam the 2-and-a-bit Km from the Kaiserwasser across the road from the VIC, passed the Gänsehäufel, to the welcoming grassy bank in front of the restaurant.
Paula, Ed and Marianna took part in the swim and the weather, just about, cooperated.
It was a 2Km swim and the VIC Swimmers posted super times:
Marianna Myandsoo - 0:34:04
Paula Calle Vives - 0:34:52
Edward Nuttall - 0:40:37
The next workshop with Paul is planned for September. The date will be confirmed ASAP. The usual venue is Amalienbad, Vienna. Workshop costs are embedded in the Club’s membership fee and non-members pay €10. Please remember that there is a registration process to attend a workshop.
From 8am on the Wednesday before the workshop, emails requesting registration will be accepted. The first 10 emails will be registered for the workshop.
A gentle reminder that, during the next few weeks, the training on Monday, Wednesday and Friday lunchtimes will take place at the Stadionbad.
Paula and Marianna are taking part. Paula will swim the 2k individual event and Marianna and Paula will take part in the team relay. Look out for photos...
Two of our swimmers took part in the crossing: Akos and Paula. Congratulations!!!
