Its the start of the Cornwall County Events and it begins with the long distance events on Saturday 8th January 2022 for 800m and Saturday 22nd January 2022 for the 1500m.

Congratulations to all the swimmers who have achieved county qualifying times in these events. In 2022 we have the most qualifiers we have ever had in long distance, 24 for 800m and 15 for 1500m. We are looking forward to #teamcaradon making lots of noise and support for all our swimmers. Jason will be coaching poolside and Team Manager for both events is Helen Daniel.
