Mollymook Ocean Swim
Mike and Julie reported that Saturday April 8 was an absolutely beautiful morning with a gentle 2-3 foot swell rolling in for the annual Mollymook Ocean Swim Classic. The water at the start was crystal clear. A short sprint, a few small waves to negotiate then into the blue water.
Awesome results from the local molly swimmers with Gary Jenner and Helen Gray winning their age divisions with great swims…congratulations!!!! The rest of the Mollymook contingent were indescribably brilliant on the day filling all sorts of non-consequential finishing positions…..but all finished !!
Volunteers stepped up again in a big way from water & watermelon tents, timing, BBQ, water safety, etc etc…and a massive well done to Rossco on a successful day.
About 200 competitors took to the water and the winning times were very fast indeed. Ken Banks alter ego (Stand in photographer Julie, replete with striped shirt) had to sprint back down the beach just to get to the finishing line before the winner Jarrod Poort tore up the beach to win. The Women’s winner was Lily O Sullivan in a fantastic time.
