The scenario was similar to last week’s, atrocious weather in the leadup (a couple of episodes of hail and cold wind as late as 5pm), but then perfect conditions for the swim.
Even the water temperature wasn’t bad at 19 degrees and 144 swimmers took part.
The featured photo, taken by Alice Trengrove, is of Finella Gibbs-Beal, winner of the short swim. The leading male in the short swim was Josh Sheridan, while Thomas Heaton and Talya Harwood (who took it by a second from Caitlin Delany) were the best swimmers in the long course.
