We were delighted to welcome BLDSA President Vince Classen to our fourth Seahorse Swim from Knoll Beach, Studland on 23 June 2013. The weather leading up to the event led us to revise our course to 3km to ensure competitors could enjoy a safe swim, albeit cooler than usual for the time of year. 165 completed the course. Results follow.
Thank you to swimmers and volunteers who supported our time trial in preparation for the Seahorse Swim on 23 June 2013.
