Whilst butterfly is undoubtedly the hardest stroke to master, once perfected it is also the best one for impressing all and sundry. smiley - cool

You can appear to porpoise effortlessly through the water at speed and with the grace of a dophin. It allways remains however too tiring to use for any length of time. smiley - puff

To really cause havoc and or amusement at the local baths one must attempt Old English Backstroke. This involves butterfly arms, breaststroke legs swum on your back! And has the following effects

a) you can't see where you are going smiley - injured

b) You appear to be drowning

c) You will never be able to show your face at the baths again without being laughed at. smiley - laugh

Old English Backstroke takes on a nightmarish quality when swimming lanes are blockaded by flotillas of elderly ladies with long nails. Their slow-motion flailing hardly breaks the surface of the water, but somehow manages to strike all but the swiftest and most agile swimmers, like rubber-capped.smiley - schooloffish
