Some people say Wellington can be windy. In our collective experience, we concur.
But there is more to Wellington than the resident stiff breeze, an oversized cake tin, and the very large nest of politicians for which the city is commonly associated. Yes indeed, Wellington has an absolutely positively beautiful harbour which plays host to the absolutely positively awesome Capital Classic Ocean Swim.
Open Water swimming in Wellington can be a daunting prospect, so take the opportunity to do it safely and in style with the country’s most experienced and well-resourced crew. Safety comes first at the New Zealand Ocean Swim Series which is why we ensure the best support crew are in the water with you, including an enormous contingent from Surf Life Saving New Zealand with support when possible from the Harbour Master and the New Zealand Police. Rest assured they’ll be there for support and encouragement for every stroke of your challenge!
Some people say Wellington is hard to beat on a good day. We say the Capital Classic in Wellington is hard to beat full stop. Set your goal today and enter here and find out for yourself first-hand.
