After a 3 hour drive up Island, the Pacific Coast Swimmers had a good first day in Campbell River. Arran Robertson (12) was the sole representative for the club –and all swimmers at the meet- in the boy’s 1500 freestyle. Known more for his breastroke than his distance freestyle, Robertson had a goal of being around 24:00. Just prior to the start of the race, CRKW swimmer Melayna Beaudin decided to jump in and as well. “I kept track until the 1000 meter mark”, Robertson said.
