The 5.6km swim from Kapiti Island to Paraparaumu Beach is an annual Kapiti event held since 1963.  This is the first year Ray White has sponsored the event. 

 It was a fantastic day with 14 swimmers entering – a great chance to promote Ray White.  The first swimmer home was Casey Glover (23 years old) with a race record of 1 hour 7 minutes 08.53 seconds.  Second place went to Stephanie Bennington (16 years old) with the female record of 1 hour 23 minutes 34.99 seconds and third place went to 15 year old Adam Dyhrberg 1 hour 32 minutes 05.42 seconds.  Pictured here is Ray, who is 68 years old and has swum in all but one of the races since it started!  The competitors received a Ray White towel at the finish line.
