Thomas has signed up at The Takapuna Beach Series for 12 out of 18 ocean swims! Good on you, I am very proud of you, my big boy! Every tuesday night at 6.20pm, rain or shine, at Takapuna beach you can swim, paddle or run different distances from 500m to 2km, nicely separated by different cap colours. Every participant wears a transponder around the ankle that keeps track of their time. Thomas has been fighting the elements twice so far in quite appaling weather. It’s really an impressive event when the “hordes” take to the water. From far it looks like a pod of whales’ flukes! Look at the images and the video below to get the feel what it’s like and you can read more about Takapuna Beach Series!
