welcomes you to our original (now known as the old) web site.

As from Sunday 9th September 2018 the new WordPress content management system based website containing all the new information from now on can be found using the original URL http://www.samastersswimming.com. This old website, that is now using the URL http://www.samswim.co.za, will only have all the historical data. To ensure continuity I have published records, colours qualifying times and results on this old website until 2019-04-30 (the end of the 2018-2019 season).

As from the 1st of May 2019 no new information will be added to this (http://www.samswim.co.za) SAMSWIM website. It will only contain archival/historical information.

Many thanks to Romeo Botes (Wahoo) who designed and implemented the super new website and to Carole Bridges who is the new Webmaster.
