The Barracudas represented well with a large team in Brussels. The team swam to a third place finish in the EFSL Benelux Division leading to almost 30 swimmers qualifying for Champs.
After a massive team illness for the first meet, our second home meet of the season was the first time we were able to see many of our swimmers in the water this year. What a great turnout!
A small team of Barracudas represented well at NAS Signonella. Six swimmer represented well in the Pentathalon Saturday followed by a fourth place team finish on Sunday in the standard meet (and four of those swimmers swam both days).
Thanks to all the Barracuda volunteers who stepped up to help with the Fall Bake Sale. We raised much needed funds and met some potential swimmers.

[portfolio_slideshow id=243] Swimming in Venice for Long Distance Champs is something only those with stamina and endurance will attempt. It can be a daunting experience when contemplating swimming an 800 or 1500, but once swum, is something to be proud of. Well done Barracudas for a strong showing of distance-driven swimming this season!
[portfolio_slideshow id=230] It’s always enjoyable to combine EFSL teams with those who support the Lakenheath Barracudas in the local community. Thank you Mildenhall, Newmarket and Ipswich for enriching our swim meet. We look forward to swimming with you again at our last home meet in January!
[portfolio_slideshow id=227] And we’re off! Here are some photos of our team in action at our first home meet of the season! Enjoy!
