Port Nelson Sea Swims, March 7


It’s very rough out there tonight with no predicted improvement. It would be tough for IRBs and almost impossible for kayakers and without our support services we’re not able to continue.

The plan at the moment is to have the final swim next week, immediately prior to the barbecue and prizegiving, but watch this website for news early next week

Who would have thought – the last swim of the season. It seems like summer is going to go on together, but winter is on the way.

Low tide is at 5.22pm, so incoming flow. The low tide is 0.7m, so there’ll be a bit of water about. Both swims will go south along the shoreline against the current, then out into the harbour for the return. Weather permitting, the long swim will be close to 2km – south to black boat, across to the jetty on the island and back to the ramp.

Check back here after the swim for results, photos, points, story.

Next week we’ll have a relay, barbecue and prizegiving.
