The 2018 SunSmart Busselton Jetty Swim was held on Sunday 11th February, in conditions that were markedly better than last year. This year, starters were greeted to a sunny morning, with a clear blue sky and a cool south-easterly (offshore) breeze that picked to about 30 km/hr at the start. The wind assisted the swim out to the end of the jetty; however, the down-side was a bit of slog into moderate chop for the first 1km or so back from the end. Nevertheless, the conditions were conducive to the setting of a swag of PB's.
Enter the record 42 strong Mandurah Mannas team, many trained to peak on this one day of the year. Our team included event first timers Wayne H, Linda, Mandy, James, Anwar and Joel. A big thank you to friends and members who came down to join the long suffering swimming widows/widowers club and support our swimmers. Those members supporting our team, included: Tess, Janet, Annette, Heather, Helen, Ivan, Pauline, and Hazel (sorry if I forgot anyone). Wow - that's 50 members all up!!

Fantastic effort everyone!!
