Man against nature,
As the turquoise sea thickens ...
Today man survives.

Approaching the end of ocean swimming season 2010/2011
5 swims in April, about 11k total:
- Stanwell Park 2.3k
- Balmoral 1k
- Queenscliff 1.5k
- Terrigal (1+2) 3k
- Coogee to Bondi - was 5k -shortened course around Coogee Bay because of the swell

2 swims - Queenscliff Swim for Saxon Saturday 1.5k - windy & rainy with choppy seas
Better conditions for Terrigal Sunday 1k & 2k. The Terrigal 2k swim looked long - 2 laps around a circuit of about 1.2k
Swim for Saxon - Well done Queenscliff SLSC - that was great effort first-up. The swim on Saturday had a really good feel to it.
Wind, driving rain, choppy surf - but that only added to the camaraderie on the day.
And an outstanding professional job with water safety, I watched the lifesavers kick up a gear at the end of the swim, to make sure every swimmer entered was safely accounted for.
Definitely room for a 3rd swim at Manly on the calendar, run by the local surf clubs - Manly Daily, North Steyne and now Queenscliff - all were good this year
