This year there is a large selection of prizes to be won across all categories of the Lagoon Mile Swim!

Registration will open on Saturday, 29 December at 10:00 at the Knysna Yacht Club for the Knysna Lagoon Mile Swim (1650m) and the Junior Swim (450m).

The Lagoon Mile Swim(1650m) starts at 12:00 at the Knysna Yacht Club hobie slipway. The course goes around the Yacht Club, turns right into the small harbour, goes under the bridge, around the Quays island and back to the finish at the hobie slipway.

The Junior Swim (450m) starts after Lagoon Mile at the same venue and goes around the Yacht Club into the harbour, but finishes at the John Benn slipway.

The Junior Swim is for 10-year olds and younger and only the first 3 girls and the first 3 boys will receive medals.  Parents and other age groups may also take part but will not be eligible for medals.

Each participant’s time will be recorded. The first 100 Swimmers who complete the one mile course will receive a medal.  There will be special medals in each race category for 1st, 2nd and 3rd places.  The winners in each male and female category will receive special prizes.

Race categories are: Male and Female:  11 – 13; 14 – 17; 18 – 27; 28 – 39; 40 and over.
