Swim 'The Whakatipu Legend'
Take the next step in your open water swimming journey.
Entries open July 23rd, 2023
Lake Whakatipu is home to one of New Zealand's most breathtaking open water swimming races
A great event for those who can swim, but haven’t yet dipped their toes into open water swimming and are feeling a little unsure.
A beach start, you’ll run (paddle maybe) into the turquoise blue. A few gasps as the cold fills your wetsuit and you’re away around the 2km course.
After a 30min vogage aboard the TSS Earnslaw Steamer Ship its your choice between a 1.5m or 3.5m leap before navigating back to Queenstown Bay
