David Kemp swam in the 50 metre freestyle, 50m breaststroke, 100m breastroke, 100m freestyle and had a very successful carnival.
His most significant achievement however, was as part of the senior relay team.
The team had a comfortable win over a very competitive Dungog Dolphins, which contained the formidable McCormick team of Jule and Hamish.
However, Dave Kemp from Stroud was the anchor swimmer and powered his way to a comfortable finish.
