Ullapool Swimming Club 

Ullapool Swimming Club has strengthened its coaching team and build a foundation for the future with support from the CalMac Community Fund.

Its 'Riding the Wave' project aimed to train new coaches and help boost club members. The five new coaches will now concentrate on improving swimmers ability and encouraging better levels of fitness among local young people.

Swimming Club organiser, Gillian Meighan said: 'Thanks to CalMac's Community Fund we now have five new Level 1 Coaches in the club. We now have two parents, a local teacher and two club members trained up and ready to get started, the new coaches will ensure continuity of the club for its current members and more to come over many years.'

One of the newly qualified coaches was Elaine from Lochinver

'Completing this course means that I have a sports qualification that will help me to be involved in training my children and others to swim. It's a great way to contribute to an important community sports club and could not have happened without this support from CalMac,' she said.
