Last month I swam in the Vladswim 10km Challenge at Balmoral in Sydney. It was a beautiful day for open water swimming and there was barely a ripple on the water when we first arrived. This swim also served as a qualifyer for the Rottnest Channel WA swim and there was a group of 53 swimmers in the 10km event.
My next challenge is the Rottnest Channel Swim in February. This swim is 19.7km and is swum from Cottesloe Beach to Rottnest Island and although it is not even half the distance of what I will be swimming in July, it will give me a chance to test my nutrition regime and feeding from a boat. Each swimmer is required to have their own skipper with boat and a paddler. Thanks to Damo and Cam for helping me out.
Weight update: I have gained a total of 2kg of Channel Fat, Yay me!!!
