Match Report
Guildford Grammar School Mixed Open Water vs  Shorehaven Open Water Swim
On: Sunday, 11 Feb 2018
Venue: Away

GGS entered 12 competitors in the Open Water Swim at Shorehaven this morning, for many of the competitors this was their first Open Water event in the ocean and they stepped up to the opportunity with gusto.

Our 500m swimmers were first off the mark and despite some drift they all successfully completed this personal challenge- at one point a pod of dolphins joined the event, once the fins were confirmed as friendly the beach farers breathed a deep sigh of relief and we got back to cheering our GGS team home.

In the 1.25km swims both Sienna (1) and Lachlan (2) podium finished in their respective categories. And in the 2.5km swim River (1) and Emily (2) also wore medals on their way to the car park. With new to distance Tobias and Jacob finishing the 2.5km in 4th and 5th respectively the future looks bright for our open water team.

It was also great to see OG Paul Nayler (Emily's dad) finish 3rd in the Legends category.
