A calm sea and warm sunshine greeted the competitors to the historic Southsea 2 km pier to pier race on Sunday in the final event of the ASA South East Region Open Water Championship series.
Chloe Pollard from Eastbourne Swimming Club needed to cross the line in 5th place to retain her title as the Woman’s Champion. Chloe did not disappoint and in an exceptionally fast race crossed the line first with a time of 23 min. 29 sec. to retain the Championship.
