Sea Swims, February 2, 2017
Cold but calm – the smoothest race of the season.
Featured swimmers: In one of the closest finishes of the night, Derek Eaton, 75, Dick Bennison, 63, and Stuart Hebberd, 68 finished in a virtual dead heat in 34th, 36th and 35th. You’re never too old for some fierce competition.
Points to date – now that we’ve had 12 swims with five to go, the final season points will start to become more apparent. The final column in the table shows your total from your best 12 results, so for some people this won’t change much from now on. Remember to email if you spot any errors.

Capital Classic swim in Wellington last weekend. Fifteen of our swimmers took part in this race, which was moved from Wellington Harbour to Lyall Bay because of strong northerlies. We scored four gold medals, one silver and two bronze. As well, Luke Kelly placed 8th overall of nearly 600 people and Peter Gibbs was the lucky winner of a fancy Huub wetsuit. Here’s a story
