The SwimTayka community and how it all started….
This months LIFESAVERS magazine from the RLSS UK sees a SwimTayka article on the community and how it all started.
As a youngster, long time RLSS UK member Bryan Avery had a passion for competitive lifesaving, encouraged and coached by Pat O’Connell. This passion went on to fuel Bryan’s swims across the English Channel, around Manhattan Island and across Lake Titicaca.

Swimming lessons at home in the UK are part of the school curriculum and usually supplemented with private lessons. I must admit, being able to swim was something I took for granted until I arrived in Huanchaco, Peru.
Otra Cosa Network arranged for swimming lessons to be provided for the children of El Comedor during the summer holidays by Bryan Avery. Bryan is a volunteer with a passion for swimming and a keen interest in teaching this skill.
