Fremantle Ports Swim Thru – Saturday 10 December 2022

10 December 2022

Below is the run down by Masters Swimming WA of the Fremantle Swim Thru:


Masters Swimming WA mentions a 73 year old but I was the oldest person to swim the 3.2 kms! Also Stuart Grey swam the 1.6km and he's probably in his 80's. The 100th anniversary of Maisie Boyle's Big Swim in 1922 was a great day. There was over 400 swimmers across the three distances including 22 people aged from 8 to 73 in the Try It event. Maisie Boyle's granddaughter Leanne Boston even participated in the swim, and was on hand to share information and stories of the famous first swim. Leanne was kind enough to bring the "original" trophy along to display at the event. Conditions were mostly calm with a moderate easterly wind although some swimmers advised it was 'a bit choppy out the back' toward the end. As usual the Freo Fins coordinating committee and volunteers did an outstanding job, as did the referees, and Coogee Beach Surf Lifesaving Club. The atmosphere was great and there have been thank you notes from people going home to Victoria, South Australia and Spain, who all enjoyed the swim
