Ocean Swim Series – Race one – Bay of Islands Classic

Fifteen or so of our swimmers took part in race one of the New Zealand Ocean Swim Series on Sunday.

In very rough conditions, we came home with six gold, two silver and two bronze medals in the 3.3km swim between Paihia and Russell, and a gold and a silver in the 750m swim on a loop course from Russell.
