We are lucky to have Ian as part of our Support team. Anything to do with the water Ian is at his happiest, from a very young age he was present at many BLDSA swims watching his sisters compete and trying not to fall in from Jetty's, river banks or piers! He has always been good at what ever he has turned his hand to. He has been County and National Lifesaving Champion, represented England and won a Silver medal at the World Lifesaving Champs a few years ago. He qualified as a Commercial diver some 8 years ago and has worked on many interesting jobs and projects. His full time job is now one of the Helms on the Lifeboat at Gravesend.
Since May he has been training with the Ladies in the Holborough Lakes and has been inspirational when help and support was the order of the day.
