Month: February 2018

 

Port Nelson swim, February 15

Turned out to be a great swim. The sea was calm, the sun was out, the current was barely there and the water didn’t taste bad at all. To the delight of some, the reduced field – the lowest this summer – gave the chance to pick up some points.

Featured photo: Jude Vincent and Jane Alloway were very happy with the swim. Janice Coyle captured some wonderful photos tonight.

Here’s the results in age group order.

Port Nelson swim, February 8, 2018

What a great swim. If we get more high tide opportunities, this seems like a popular option – give us your thoughts.

After a look at the tide tables, it doesn’t seem that there’s one suitable for another beach swim this season. We’ll definitely put some on the season for next year.

We had 156 swimmers, in perfect conditions.
