Mollymook represented at International Ocean Swim Race in Vanuatu.

Touring uniform: At the Mollymook Ocean Classic, Mrs Sparkle represented the gracious group of local swimmers and presented Graeme with his touring uniform, which was a swim cap.
.
The Rossi to Rossi swim was called the “2nd Inaugural”, because someone forgot to change the previous years artwork on the t-shirts. Oceanswim reported: the swim was in the harbour of Port Vila, the capital of Vanuatu, which offered as near to perfect conditions as you could ever expect in open water. It was like swimming in a pool. The water was mirror smooth; the current almost imperceptible; there was no swell, chop, breeze, and hardly any pack to speak of, Perfect conditions! The Rossi swim started at 7 am, headed through the harbour to the south, then around Iririki Island, past where the cruise ships call in, and across a reef, and back to the harbour at Rossi, a 3.2 km swim all before breakfast. Graeme, Mollymook’s representative finished 9th out of 51 finishers and was 2nd in his age category.
