Congratulations to Gary Dressel, who won the 2k swim with a pretty incredible time of 25.42. Last year’s winner, Matt Baker, came in second at 27.24. Third was Phil Williams, in a time of 29.39.

Matt McQuillan won the 1k swim in 14.27, with Thomas Loudon second in 19.35 and Elizabeth Scott just behind in third in 19.39.

The full list of results for both races can be seen here.


Thanks to everyone who came down and made the swim a success.

We’ve had quite a bit of positive feedback but we’re always trying to improve for next year (yes, we’re already thinking about next year!) So if there’s anything you’d like to tell us while it’s still fresh in your mind, please do so. All the money for the swim goes towards the Regatta to maintain and repair the boats and equipment, so we want to make it as successful as possible, and the way to do that is to keep our swimmers happy! So if there’s anything you think we can do better next year, or something new you’d like to see, fill out the form on the Contact Us page or email
