We're pleased to announce that after a successful first event in Akaroa last season, we're back to bring you a second instalment on Saturday, 23 February 2013.
We have the same four achievable swim distances and are going to make the most of the quaint French community of Akaroa by adding a market atmosphere with food and local craft stalls in the race village.
