Wanaka Lake Swimmers

We, as a committee, are passionate about open water swimming. We love just getting in there, exploring, floating about! In Lake Wanaka you can drink the water, it’s so clean and generally crystal clear and flat.

We set this club up in September 2011 to help provide a forum for open water swimmers in and around Lake Wanaka. Last summer, we had up to 60 swimmers going into the water at a time and we felt that their presence needed to be acknowledged and accommodated. We felt that the best way to do this was to set up an official “Club” with a membership. So we did that in September. On the committee we have Claire O’Connell, Jackie Boyd, Marjorie Cook, Kevin Gingell Kent, Anna Kate Hutter and David Strang.
