He said: “I know from my own experience that GTC is a great club, with a really friendly and all-inclusive atmosphere.
“I joined the club because I wanted to give open water swimming a go and I have enjoyed being part of GTC ever since.
“Big Bobble Hats is proud to be the sponsor of the ‘Briggs race.” Big Bobble Hats will also become the club’s supplier of club training kit, including t-shirts, technical tees, hoodies and baseball hats. See: Big Bobble Hats.
