Forty five swimmers met at Shelley Beach, Manly at 6.30am on 15th December. There were a
few clouds around, the ocean was a little bumpy and all were ready to brave the ocean.

It started a nice peaceful swim then out of the blue swimmers came from every direction. It
was like the yachts on Sydney Harbour. Everyone was out in the ocean doing their Saturday
morning swim!!!

The Carlile swimmers did a great job with the older ones completing the course twice.

The BBQ was ready and waiting for our hungry athletes, and then lots of fun was had with
Kris Kringle, lolly bags, beach soccer, beach flags and lots of swimming.

It was a great turn out and Thank You once again to all the parents who helped paddling
in the water and with the BBQ. Without your help we could not have had such a wonderful
Christmas Party.
