18 JANUARY 2024

We were so sad today to hear of the passing of Anne Speed last night. Anne was a delight to everyone who knew her, generous to a fault and an incredibly loyal club member who always wanted to contribute, no matter what the activity. Such was her swimming prowess and mental clarity that we often forgot her 88 years, as we suspect did she.

She was delighted in her later years to obtain many FINA top 10 times, both individual and with her buddies in the club’s 320 plus relay teams. With the news of Anne’s passing the most common comment on our Dolphins WhatsApp page has been ”I will so miss her chats”. We think that goes for all who knew her.

Our thoughts are with her family at this difficult time.

Rest in Peace Anne.
