Seventeen swimmers from Dumfries Amateur swimming club travelled as a team South of the border to compete at the Sunderland Aquatic Centre in their annual New Year Meet. This competition attracts swimmers from Scotland, England and Ireland. It is by far one of the favourite meets amongst the Dumfries swimmers and it is also the first long course meet of the season, where the swimmers try to achieve qualification times to compete at the up and coming Scottish National events.
Well done boy's!! :) Attached is a picture of Rory representing Dumfries ASC with his gold medal in the kids swim on Saturday. In second place was Zach Barbour (Stewartry Seals). Zach's older brother Sam (also Stewartry Seals) was third - this was his first open water swim! They all swam really well and deserved their medals and their mars bars! #Openwater2018 #DASC #StewartySeals #DumfriesDolphins #DumfiriesASC #DumfriesAmateurSwimmingClub
19 young swimmers form Dumfries ASC made the journey to Linwood for the Ren 96 Graded Meet. A favourite venue for many of the DASC parent contingent.

The club amassed a total of 35 medals-8 golds 4 Silvers, 6 Bronze, nine 4th place ribbons, six 5th place, two 6th
