What a couple of wonderful days we had swimming the Cook Strait. The weather was with us, which always helps.
The Preschool sung a beautiful Karakia to set us up, we then were lucky enough to have three wonderful people to get us started with a few lengths, Paul Reese ( our president), Sally Mac (a very keen local swimmer) and Delta McLean our very own little star, she may be only 4 but a length she did swim.
Between the school and the community we swam the full 1023 lengths needed to get across the strait.
On Saturday we had the competitive ones in, all teams did well and the atmosphere was electric, in the end team Keane won in an amazing time of 5 hours and 10 mins.
We have to thank all our sponsors for all they offered us, whether that be food or prizes. A big special thanks has to go Interislander who were our major sponsors providing the first and second prizes for the teams competition.
