Our Swimming Story

Our Swimming Story

New Zealand has a coastline of 15,134 km, 180,000 km of mapped rivers and 3240 lakes – combine that with a generally temperate climate and it’s little wonder that New Zealanders have a strong affinity for the water. Our ancestors all arrived by water – some crossing the Pacific and others making the journey later from the other side of the world.
