    Good swim once you get past the break, which is a bit scary for beginners. Water safety team were fabulous, supportive and encouraging.

    Challenging swim for a relatively short distance. Short chop made it tough for the first leg heading north. Overall a great swim! (edited)

    Great swim, but a map with the buoys and the direction would have helped to have a look before the swim. And bigger buoys too, hard to see the small ones! But great effort

    Top marks for a well-organised, well-marked, and well-supervised ocean swim. Heavy swell was a bit challenging getting in and out, but great fun. Thanks!
