New Swim Route – Around the Bay and Beyond 2.17kms

The course set this morning was Around the Bay (Dirty cone, Far cone (Raglan St.), Woody, through a Cat, the Post, Polar Bear, Dirty cone and home or down the coast). As the idiots (Bevan, Dave U., Rob, and Chris) continued to chat, I was keen to get things moving so I struck out on my own, with Ed following not far behind.

A 2.17km outing as the crow flies. Nice.

For the Seasoned Idiots, there was Chris sans wetsuit, Deb after a dry spell, Linda who is back in the swing of things, Meg, Robert, Don and…

A very late running Luke joined us as we were leaving.
