Auckland Harbour swim series begins this weekend


Auckland Masters harbour summer swim series kicks off again on Saturday

Auckland’s top community-based series of events
Option remains to take swimmers round Watchman’s Island
First of four events to build distance over the season

2 Nov 2017

This season’s Auckland Master’s summer series of swims starts this Saturday (November 4) when keen swimmers will take the traditional first dip in a favourite community-based series of events.

Now in its 37th year, the popular series is run by volunteer members of the Auckland Central Masters Swimming.

In response to popular demand, this year’s swim from Herne Bay beach to Masefield Beach at the foot of the Harbour Bridge will again take a scenic detour around Watchman’s Island to bring the total distance to 2.2km.

Participants in the Master’s series of races include all ages and abilities, from swimmers keen to take home a medal through to more social participants who enjoy the club’s long standing community approach.

The series builds through progressively longer swims until it reaches the iconic Rangitoto swim in March.
