Challenge Wanaka 2012 Race Week – Thursday

This morning the plan was to get an early swim in just to get a little more used to the possible choppy conditions in the lake. The van had been rocked all night by strong winds and when we got to the beach at about 9am the wind was absolutely howling and nobody was swimming.…
