Turned out to be a bit tougher than expected. Reasonable current to combat in the first leg, with a few more waves than predicted. A good challenge and preparation for Sunday’s 3.8km swim.

It will be high tide at 9pm, so we’ll be swimming on an incoming tide.
Both swims will head south against the current, close to shore, before swinging out for a boosted trip to the finish. Long swim will probably return via the dolphin.
