Open Water 2017 Regional Championships Event Report

This years’ event saw a 100% increase in entries over previous years’, resulting in a very busy day for everyone. The event organisers were able to give everyone who entered the opportunity to swim.   Once again, the event was blessed with fine weather, which also helped to make the day a success. Four different distances were swum – 1k, 1.5k, 3k and 5k. The 1.5k race was the biggest event of the day with nearly 120 entrants resulting in the need to swim the race in several “waves”.
