Hannah Trott is one of the newer members of the Hythe Aqua Masters Squad and has been busy competing recently. Hannah completed 2 out of 4 of the locations from the Great Swim series this year. The Great Swims are the UK's most popular outdoor swims. With no lanes or chlorine, they are a fantastic opportunity to swim outdoors in historic and scenic locations across the UK, whilst raising money. Distances include half a mile, one mile, two miles and 5km, so there is a swim to suit everyone's ability.
