I don’t profess to be an efficient swimmer. In fact in the one and only triathlon I ever completed I was the 2nd to last swimmer out of the water in my heat of 50 competitors (the last guy must have drowned).

However, despite my lack of efficiency I do love to get wet and NZ offers endless opportunities for recreational swimmers like myself (Doug- you would love it here).

Here are some pictures from my swimming escapades:
