DOLPHIN MILE 5km SURF SWIM
In Support of SEA RESCUE (NSRI) SOUTH AFRICA
Congratulations to the 67 swimmers who completed today’s (Sunday 17 June 2018) swim. Predictions for weather and sea conditions proved accurate, with the swim starting in a flat,warm sea under overcast skies south of uShaka Pier. The expected offshore breeze could hardly be felt and the north-easterly held off until the last of the finishers had exited the surf. Swimmers reported clear visibility around the course all the way to the turning point off Bay of Plenty Beach and back to the beach finish in front of Marine Surf Lifesaving Club.
Thanks go to all lifesavers on duty and to NSRI crew who were on hand to lend their support to the swimmers at this fundraising event. Thank you, too, to all event assistants and to those who supported the participants and the event.
To “Dolphin Milers”: Thank you to all who have responded positively to a call from the Sea Rescue office and for giving your ongoing support to an organisation providing an invaluable service to all the people of our country.
