I just registered for the 3k Open Water Swim Event at Sydney 2009 World Masters.
Set myself a target time which is 3 minutes faster than anything I've swum over that distance before. Some hard training sessions lie ahead, early starts on winter mornings. Need to work on maintaining pace over longer distances.

Extract from local media report (edited)-
"Most swimming races test to see how fast we can swim. Eighteen teams took part in a very different type of swimming contest. This one challenged how far we can swim at Sydney Olympic Park Pool at Homebush recently . The time limit: 24 hours. Teams of 15-members each took to the pool from midday Saturday to midday Sunday, the question was how many laps could each team complete.
A team of local swimmers from Sea’s the Limit Swim Club in Botany took part in the MS MegaSwim, which also acted as a fundraiser for multiple sclerosis. The group completed 93.1 kilometers in the 24-hour contest; finishing first amongst the competition and setting an event record.
The real winners on the day were MS Australia who managed to raise over $140,000 for the many Australians currently living with MS."
