Bonjour Akaroa! We’re back again in this picturesque seaside village, with an incredible line-up of swims to choose from, starting in the morning this time around to maximise the tranquil conditions in the bay. The Generation Homes La Grande Swim is essential for your ‘Kiwi Summer Swimming Roadie’ if you’re taking on the only endurance distance in the Series, the 5km ‘Wainui to Akaroa’. Now that’s a reason to fist-pump the sky when you cross that finish line! Why not make a weekend of it in the beautiful bay area and experience the distinctly French-influenced restaurants, boutiques and galleries.
Swims on offer:
Wainui to Akaroa – 5km – cross the Harbour in our longest swim of the Series
The Akaroa Bay – 2km
Beach to Rec Grounds – 750m
Banana Boat OceanKids 100m and 200m (7-10 years)
