Sports n All 1km Marina Swim Makes Waves At Port Alfred Easter Festival

The Open Water Swim event at the Port Alfred Easter Festival was a resounding success, bringing together competitive swimmers from all over the country for a thrilling aquatic showdown. The event was organised by Sports ‘n All, and showcased the spirit of both sports performance and community engagement.

On a bright and sunny afternoon, swimmers took on the challenge of swimming a distance of 1 kilometre around Halyards Hotel. Despite the warm weather, participants had to face the additional challenge of wind. However, the low tide swim and the turn of the tide helped moderate the water temperature, making for a refreshing yet invigorating experience.

The competition was divided into two categories based on age, with 29 swimmers competing in the 18 and above category, while 17 participants swam in the 17 and under category. Each participant demonstrated exceptional prowess and determination, leaving a lasting impression on spectators and fellow participants alike.

The atmosphere during the event was vibrant, with friends and family members cheering on the swimmers. The scenic backdrop of Halyards Hotel provided the perfect setting for this thrilling aquatic showdown, as participants navigated the waters in a clockwise direction, around the iconic establishment.

Pierre Coetzer from Sports ‘n All, while reflecting on the significance of the Open Water Swim event in Port Alfred, emphasized its potential for growth and expansion. He envisions additional categories and spin-off events in the coming years, which would add to the unique charm of the Port Alfred Easter Festival.
