    Thank you very much for hosting a very enjoyable swim. I was a very late entry and appreciated the patience of the volunteers. That and everything else about the swim was great and I look forward to it next year!

    The 2km is great distance for an ocean swim at the Newport Pool to Peak. Well run event by the organisers of Newport SLSC – a great team effort by the members associated with all the work that would go in behind the scenes. See you again next year, all being well, for my 3rd event swim. Cheers.
