Cathedral Cove Swim Report 2018



Stunning HaHei Beach greeted the big crowd of swimmers and supporters with hot sunny conditions and a glassy one metre wave.

With close to high tide the shore break was a tricky one with many losing goggles (and a watch tied to the goggles!) Remember tighten those goggles and if you get dumped tuck your head and forward roll! If dumped onto the beach lift head and put down hands!

The 4.5km swim was easier on the way out with the tide, and a little harder on the way back. Top swimmer with local knowledge Stu Penman paced it well coming in first in 52.51 well ahead of strong West Auckland swimmer Dion Twiss.

Experienced ocean swimmer Richard Smith won honours for first home non wetsuit (59.31), while his wife Rachel Richardson won first wetsuit women in 1.10.20. Second was Kylene Sclebush and evergreen Helen Adams won first non wetsuit! The 2km saw seasoned swimmer Loiuse Schofield take out female line honours with a great 33.31 (wetsuit) and first home was young swimmer Oliver Hughson in a fine 29.07 wetsuit

(the 2km includes a run through the giant Cathedral Cove archway). Gia Jeffery at just thirteen swam outstanding to get second in the women wetsuit while Will Simpson was second in the mens.

Non wetsuit winners were Kerry Gibson and Simon Papa. Cutshop Mt Wellington donated $700 in merit prizes making it the richest Ocean Swim in NZ, whilst Seti Afoa from The SamoaSwimSeries donated two entries to the fabulous three swims in three days complete with transfers and fine dinner.

Other prizes included two nights at the HaHei Holiday Resort, GM massage vouchers, BFoster vouchers, T3 products, champagne, fine chocolates, etc.

Some swimmers came all the way from Wellington while a contingent of twelve came from Australia as part of the OceanSwimSafaris.com swim package which has many very fine swim safaris in different locations around the world including the ManaOceanFest this October.

Thank you to all supporters, swimmers, the sponsors and the Paradise Events crew and lifeguards. We hope you enjoyed it and hope to see you and others next year!

Special thanks to Phantom Billboards as one of our sponsors

Achilles Point Swim Report 2016


Unprecedented amount of easterlies this summer has meant choppy conditions for afternoon North Island east coast swimming the last six weeks.  But an early morning swim saw complete calm and even jumping fish at southern St Heliers beach for the Achilles Point Swim.  Everyone seemed to enjoy this scenic uncrowded swim. Great times by the winners (see results). Plenty of fab prizes thanks to CutShop (restaurant vouchers), prestigious Samoa Swim Series, $250 of Triathletes Corner vouchers,  Mortons bar vouchers etc. Thanks all for your support.
