And I don’t just mean the big lake today. I’m referring to our latest 40.2 challenge participant Gabrielle Gunn.
After setting out from Waihi at the southern end of the lake this morning around 5.30am, Gabrielle has made steady progress on a pearler of a day in warm water conditions up to 23 degrees.
Currently about 10km to go of her massive swim. Awesome job Gabrielle (and from Ange Campbell your swim squad buddy from way back “GO GABRIELLE !!!!!!”).
How’s that for a calm day on Lake Taupo?
Update: Gabrielle has done it, 16hrs 31minutes. Congratulations and welcome to the club 😊
