What a beautiful swim. 1700m around the harbour, to the jetty on the island, then on in a circuit around all the boats moored in the basin between Haulashore Island and Rocks Rd.
Alec Swan dominated the long swim, winning from Fergus Drummond, Oxford Bayley, Abbey Smale, Terry Bone, Hamish Neill and Sierra Thomas, with Sophie Alexander and Flossie Van Dyke taking the third and fourth women’s places.
Making it a family double victory, Brooke Swan won the short course of 450m, with a frantic sprint for second between Olivia Huata-Findlay and Emily Chadderton, followed by Corey Tremblay.
