Sea Swims, November 9, 2017

Things couldn’t have been better for the opening night swim. Sunny skies, calm seas and a turnout of 167 swimmers. While not quite matching the opening nights of 2013 (175 swimmers) and 2012 (171 swimmers) it was a cheerful start to the season, with swims of 400m and 800m

A bit of tweaking coming up, but here’s the initial results

Points for the season are accumulated each night, with each swimmer’s best 12 of the 18 swims counting towards season points. Here’s the points so far.

We no longer have access to the Stuff website and the Nelson Mail, as Australian owners Fairfax have decided local sports news is not important enough. However, our stories will be published on the mobile app The Nelson App and also in Tuesday nights Waimea Weekly and Nelson Weekly when space allows. Here’s the story for the next issue.
