Blue September swim, September 24

Beautiful day, even the water didn't feel cold, although it was only 14 degrees. An enthusiastic field of 37 took part in the 660m swim, with Hayden Squance clocking 8min 31sec to finish ahead of Matt Hansen. Kerry Mathieson was first woman to finish in 9min 40sec, from Wendy Healey. 

With many swimmers printing the sponsorship forms, around $2500 was able to be donated to the Prostate Cancer Foundation. Peter Colbert topped the list, raising $520, with Sandra McGregor close behind, raising more than $400.
