We are Neptune Finswimming Club one of the leading finswimming clubs in the UK. Our club is 5 years old now and is a key player in promoting this sport in the UK. This year we are making our fist steps towards big international competitions.
What is finswimming?
Finswimming is a sport where athletes use monofins (a single fin for both legs) or bi-fins (one fin for each leg) to progress though a distance. In a way it is similar to ordinary swimming with exception that finswimming is about 30% faster and therefore some people refer to it as Formula One in swimming. For example, current world record for the fastest finswimming race – 50m apnea is 13.85s set by Pavel Kabanov.
More about us
Four members from our club are going to attend the finswimming World Cup in Italy this year. Two of this team are current holders of the UK National records in different events: monofin and bi-fins. Terence, Daniel and Vlad will compete against the best finswimmers in the world and Andrei will lead the team as a coach.
If we receive sponsorship we will pay for:
- Airfare, entry fee and accommodation in Italy
- Equipment such as fins and swim suites
- Pool time for the training
To be the best as we can be. To start building experience of participating in the international events for our club and the country. We all are determined individuals and will work hard to achieve great results and inspire others.
Any donations, regardless of the amount, are a great help in realising our potential for competing and representing Neptune Finswimming Club and the UK in the finswimming world.
