32. Albatross History-5-1980. Team of nine battled in Bexley Challenge at Feltham

Albatross History-5-1980  Newcomer Abigail Child had started how she mean’t to go on!   One of the first places to be gained in the Bexley Challenge.  She was already a lovely plain diver in the short time she had been an Albatross.

Abigail Child and Juliet Green dived excellently.  Abigail won the coveted first place with Juliet second.  The Bexley Challenge was indeed a challenge but many of our up and coming divers were a force to be reckoned with.  It was very exciting between the rounds with Mark Stroud; Mark Dearing; and Ewan Meek diving their socks off against tough opposition.  Albatross Team were leading until the third round. Opposition from Cambridge & District Diving Club  and several other clubs was tough and after a bout of nail biting see-sawing,  Albatross finally finished overall in fourth place.  Good scoring from Diana Seward; Caroline Knollys; Marianne Green and Louise Taylor.
