NZ Open Water Championships and Camp 2016

Roskill Swim Club Started their training early in the new year with camp starting on the 2nd January and the team of 16 smashing out 48km in 8 sessions and 6 dry lands in just 4 days and doing all Long Course.
Then Next up The team headed to Taupo for New Zealand Open Water Championships. As beautiful as the lake looked you couldn’t get away from how cold it was, sitting around 18 degrees.
We had two swimmers start Day 1 with the 10km non wetsuit race, which even has a feeding station its that long, unfourethly it was just to cold for our two swimmers to finish, but it was still an awesome effort for both Samantha and Flynn for their first time at the 10km. we Also had in day 1 our youngest member Vienna, who did the 2.5km which was her first ever ocean swim, we also had Gemma Pennycook do the 5km and finish 4th in her age group.
Then in Day 2 we had the rest of the team, Seven swimmers do the 5km non wetsuit, which almost the whole team managed to get though the cold and finish the race apart from our little guy Matt O, We had Eddie finish first for the Roskill team with Jesse close behind, then Matt S, Adam, Bridget and then Jessica.
It was a great experience for both the Coach and for all the swimmers and we hope to return next year. For now our next focus is towards AMC swim meet in 2 weeks time and then building up to our National events.
Still a huge summer ahead.
