    Hi, i’m Nina from Germany and I’m going to be in NZ for a holiday over Christmas/New Years. Haven’t finished planning the exact route yet, but most likely I would be round the Nelson area on the 4th of January and be interested in swimming the long course. Shall I register online or would it be possible to just come on the day?
    Also not sure yet if I can take my wetsuit with me(weight of the luggage…)

      Hi Nina – think I replied, but just in case.

      It’s really warm, so ok to go without wetsuit. Better to register online, but you can sign up on Swim night at 5.30 if you like. Parking difficult so best to arrive early at the Nelson yacht club.
