Albatross History 3-1977.  Good future ahead

This was the first time ever a diving team dived to music.  Somersaulting and twisting, mixed with pure grace and streamlining, they hit the beats spot on during the dreamy music of “Albatross.”  Perfectly in time,  they  sliced through the water with precision. The floodlit pool added atmospheric delight.  They took their final bow to thunderous applause.

This month was to be the continuing with style and very good things to come.  In a few months  “Albatross” Diving Club of Reading was to be born!
