Week 7
That it’s Been a Good One is a Given

Every week is a good one at Crescent Beach. As we enter the last week of our CBSC summer, dusk is arriving a little bit sooner. That also means everything that happens will be just a little bit sweeter, so from sun up to sun down enjoy these moments with family and friends in what time is left of summer 2023!


Speed Swimming

Good Luck to our competitive swimmers at Provincials this weekend! Go Seahorses! Many of our athletes have been in Nanaimo competing already, so look for more updates to come next week.

Art Swim

It was a Seahorse sweep at the 2023 Artistic Swimming Provincials!! A huge congratulations to our athletes who are all bringing home some serious hardware from their artistic swimming performances this past Tuesday! Our beginner team’s routine Rio won Gold: Annabelle Cranston, Grace Keighron, Maddie Hadfield, Capri Pearsall, Lily Douglas, Addison Miller, Daelyn Miller. Our Intermediate Duet won Gold: Cora Clendenin, Natalia Phillips. And Chloe Berretta brought home two gold medals for her Tech and Free Solo.

But wait, the excitement doesn’t end there! Summer is far from over, and our 109 recreational artistic swimmers are putting the final touches on their Star routines for the much-anticipated Artistic Swimming Star Show. Mark your calendars for August 24th at 7pm, as the CBSC Main Pool transforms into a stage for this dazzling event. We extend a warm welcome to all club members to join us in bidding farewell to summer with this spectacular showcase. See you there!
