Lake Rotoma Swim

The Kiwanis Lake Rotoma Swim has been held each Waitangi Day (New Zealand's national day: 6th February) for many years. It features a variety of events open to all comers and all ages. 

A 1500 m. rope is suspended below the lake surface by orange buoys and droppers every 10m. Larger buoys mark the corners and finish line. The course is triangular and has legs of 550 m., 550 m. and 400 m.
