Yesterday we completed the Maui channel swim for the second time for the same sense of achievement. A nervous night after the race briefing. Everybody talking about recent shark attacks but as a numbers person I told myself this lessened the likelihood of a repeat. The. The briefing went on and on about it being peak season for box jellyfish and how nasty is the sting.... Then my team mates started talking about pulling out if there are any sharks sighted....
So when we swam out to the boat in the dark at 4 AM it was kind off creepy
But once we started the swim conditionals for nearly the entire race were near perfect and we smashed last years time by an hour... We even won a towel on the presentation night.
A great sense of achievements s so good to see Ket on the beach.
