Port Nelson Sea Swims, Race 16, February 25
February – traditionally the month of calm conditions, where we stretch the swims out and enjoy the speed. Not so this year, as El Nino seems intent on plaguing us to the bitter end.
Tonight’s swim was rough and tough, but short enough that we could all enjoy punching into the waves (the offer only available for a limited time).
In the end, the short swim was about 400m, the long one only about 600m.
