A sombre night, with low cloud and low water, but conditions were pretty good, although the chop coming back was a surprise and there seemed to be a bit of early current from the incoming tide.
As usual, Luke Kelly led out on the 900m swim, with a large group to the first mark, spreading a bit on leg two to the dolphin. On the long stretch back to the final marker, Luke, Fergus Drummond and Bendi Kepess broke away to contest a very tight finish, Oxford Bayley and Hayden Squance were next, with a gap back to Abbey Smale. Terry Bone, Nic Hall, Hamish Neill and Sophie Alexander rounded out the top ten.
