    McBean Middle Island Challenge

    10 Sep 2021

    The McBean Middle Island Challenge is an open water swim race named after our previous swimming coach Lloyd McBean, who has since retired. It took place on 1st July, 2021 with a start/finish at the VRC in Deep Water Bay and 3 distances on offer: 1km, 2km, or 3.8km. The 3.8km goes around Middle Island. The swim was technical with choppy conditions. 300 swimmers took part in one of the very first swim races allowed since the pandemic started, with 10 swimmers from the Club who showed great results.

    Matthieu MLV continued his impressive season with a 5th position overall in 54’08”, a mere 40 seconds after the overall winner. Catherine Sen came 1st in her age group F 40-49. Congratulations to Jessica McCarroll for still holding the course record in the 50+ Age group since 2018, and to all Club swimmers for their strong results.

    TIPS FOR OPEN WATER SWIMMING

    • If the sea is choppy, raise your arms higher to go over the waves.

    • Going in the right direction is crucial, so look up regularly and set your direction with an easily identifiable target (a building, a mountain, a tree).

    • If drafting is authorized like in cycling races, stay behind a slightly stronger swimmer to save energy.
