They say you can't beat Wellington on a good day and this stood very true last season where we had cracking conditions for the State Capital Classic, resulting in very happy competitors across all four swim distances.
This season sees the State Capital Classic kicking off at the more respectable hour of 8.30am on Sunday 26 January 2014 with the 'I'm Going Long' swim from Frank Kitts Park, around the iconic Pt Jerningham Lighthouse to Freyberg Beach in Oriental Bay. Then the 'Step it Up 1000m', 'Give it a Go 300m' and inspirational State OceanKids take to the water in their respective swims from Oriental Bay Beach to Freyberg Beach.
Get all your friends and family to come and support you during your swim, with some of the best spectator vantage points around the Harbour and hugging the Oriental Bay Beaches. As with all the other six State New Zealand Ocean Swim Series events, New Zealand's Surf Lifesavers will be out in force keeping a watchful eye on the swimmers as you take on your personal challenges and enjoy swimming in the Capital's Harbour. See you there!
