1996 – Mollymook Ocean Swimmers – the formative years

The Milton pool was a ‘beginning’ for the ocean swim group. It was due to close at the end of summer (March 1996), Jan Humphries & Simone Daley asked swim instructor (Whale rider) John Smeeth where to now? Mollymook Beach was the obvious choice! As time went on the fledgling group grew slowly. Kim Wilson, later Graeme Wolfenden, then Mark Burcher, Sean Pitcock originally meeting on a Sunday. Later Jan, Simone and Kim began swimming mid week.

But by then there were a few more than just Jan, Kim and Simone – but they were the three “bosses”!
