There were 36 events in total, covering a range of strokes and distances, from the 50m butterfly to the 1,500m freestyle, with swimmers as young as nine competing for the impressive Bridlington-themed medals.

The Junior and Senior Medley Relays (where teams of four swim 100m butterfly, backstroke, breaststroke and freestyle) raised the roof, with supporters – both poolside and those attending in the crowded stands – enthusiastically encouraging their teams to win a share of the prize money.

A spokesman said: “Members of Bridlington Swimming Club did well all weekend, with a huge haul of medals, including the highly sought-after ‘speeding’ medal, which is awarded when swimmers exceed the official time limit for an event.
