Sea swims, January 5, 2017
Solid swims of 400m and 1200m. Christchurch swimmer Angus Syme touched just ahead of Hayden Squance in the long race, with Nelson’s 2016 junior sportswoman of the year Caitlin Delany edging out Talya Harwood in Caitlin’s last swim with us for a few years, as she prepares to take up a swim scholarship in San Diego. Zara Aydon cracked on with yet another win in the short course ahead of Emily Bryant and Nicholas Paulin.
