Port Nelson swims, February 7

It was a wonderful swim tonight, with the long swim stretching out to about 1600m, taking in the area south to Richardson St, north to a buoy off the Haulashore jetty, then back to the ramp.

Following the highly successful showing of Nelson swimmers at the Capital Classic in Wellington, many of our swimmers are featuring on the age group lists in the Banana Boat Ocean Swim Series.

Most notable is Andrew Martin, who is fifth in the overall male standing after swimming in all three races so far (Bay of Islands, Omaha and Wellington).

In the age group standings we have many in the top three (although swimmers who have swum in all three races have an advantage so far, final points are taken from the best three results of the seven race series):

Sierra Thomas 1st= F15-19

Luke Kelly and Fraser Neill, 2nd= M20-24 (One win each)

Andrew Martin 1st M55-59

Janis Crampton 1st F60-64 (A perfect record of three wins)

Maggy Johnston 2nd F60-64

Peter Gibbs 1st M70-74

Stuart Hebberd 3rd M70-74 (after just two swims)

Derek Eaton 1st M75-79
