Luke joins a select group with three wins (that group includes Fergus Strickland, Megan Ramsay, Harrison Dean and Hayden Squance – but the most successful swimmer has been Emma Thomson, who won the event six times between 2002 and 2008).

    Presume we need to be checked in for a briefing at 10:45 for an 11:00 start. There’s reference to 11:45 which I’m sure is a typo.

    Hi! Can we register on line before or just on the day? The website just allows registration for the Thursday’s swim.

    • Peter says:

      The same registration link on the swim website includes the Port Nelson swims AND The Enurance swims as options.

    Hi, loving the series so far thanks team. A novice question…will we be swimming with or against current or is it a mixed bag? Trying to decide between the full or short race and knowing how it will feel will be useful thanks! Stephanie

      The race starts exactly on the high tide, so in theory there will be no current. Wind is likely to have a bigger effect this time, but fingers crossed the strong winds of the last few days are abating.
