Pointbreak OTB Open Water Swim Challenge 7 March 2015

More than 220 swimmers took part in the annual Pointbreak Open Water Swim challenge that took place at Lake Oanob Resort near Rehoboth on Sunday, 8 March 2015.

Despite the rainy forecasts predicted for the day, sunny and clear skies were the norm, which had many excited for the swimming competition. The champ of the day was Nikolai Flemming, who won the 2.1km event in a time of 30 minutes and 44 seconds.

"We are pleased with the high turn out and increased numbers. Nikolai was a deserving winner although we would have liked to have seen more of the club swimmers participating so that we would have had more youngsters in the top 10," said the OTB Sport organisers.
