Lorne Pier to Pub 2015

Standard

Since 3071 swimmers took to the water in 1998, the swim has been entered into the Guinness Book of Records as the world’s largest open water swim. This year I was one of 5000 participants and I would say one of the bravest, having feared swimming most of my life and perhaps done the least training in the lead up.
