One of the bucket list events on the Jeffreys Bay December programme is the annual Marina Mile.
The Marina Mile has become one of the bigger open water swim events in South Africa since it was resurrected in 2002 when Yvonne Lentinello and Brenton Williams held the event which was won by Port Elizabeth swimmer David Glover.
Eastern Cape swimmers have dominated the Mile ever since with Matthew van Der Burg, Philip Kuhn, Byron Lockett, David Marais, Michael Marais and Chris Van Der Sande all having won the event.
Two women have dominated the Marina Mile in the past, with National swimmers Velia Janse Van Rensburg and Olympian Jessica Roux both being multiple winners at Marina Martinique.
Marina Martinique is a perfect open water swim venue due to the protected canals and pollution free salt water canals.
Join the fun in Jeffreys Bay on the penultimate day of the year – 30 December. Covid protocols will be observed and sadly there will be no prizegiving and prizes will be handed out after every event.
