The first open water swim of the season will be held as a Mudcrab members only event at Lake Barrine on Sunday, 20 September.
Swim briefing 8:45am
Swim start 9:00am
The Mudcrabs new water safety dingy & outboard will be in action and we will be seeking on the day willing volunteers to participate in trial water rescues.
The swim distance is approximately 2km. This is a social swim and therefore fins, wetsuits and any other swimming aids welcome. There will be no timekeeping and only 2 safety vessels in attendance. Swimmers will commence in waves depending upon ability and all swimmers will re-group on the opposite bank before embarking on the return leg.
Members are encouraged to stay after the swim for morning tea at the Lake Barrine Teahouse.
If you are not already a Mudcrab member but interested in joining before this swim, please see our Membership & Contact page for options.
The 2015/2016 Summer Open Water Swim Series flyer will be published on line within the week.
