Coach Gerry generates infectious enthusiasm. A colleague who was already in the
club recruited me to start swimming again after 22 years since last being coached.
Obviously there were quite a few things to correct in my strokes, not least since the
theory of proper form had changed quite a bit, and I’d been practicing things incorrectly.
In a year my sprints were almost as fast as when I was a teenager, and I even
had a top 10 national time in the 100 fly in my age group. The workouts were
varied and fun. I’m now hooked on master’s swimming for life.
