Wing Swimming Championships 23

Whilst the outside temperatures were low, the pool was certainly warm and welcoming for the competitors of the 2023 Trent Wing Swimming Championships, held at RAF Cranwell last weekend.

In a great competition, squadrons took to the pool in various heats and finals, demonstrating the very best in sportsmanship, competitive spirit and teamwork. Supported by a team of adult volunteers, picking up the challenge of the various supporting roles to run the competition, the tensions rose as the day moved towards it's close and the announcements of which units would be taking home the trophies.
