Finish your year well by participating in the Lomond Open Water Swim taking place on the Sunday of the long weekend in December!
Whilst you are very close to South Africa’s Great White Shark capital, you will be safe while swimming in a beautiful fresh water dam surrounded by vineyards and fynbos valleys. An absolute treat as swimming in this dam is only allowed at this event.
The Lomond Triathlon will be held the day before at the same venue, so why not make a weekend of it and come and enjoy the fun.
There are three distances to choose from: 3km for the serious guys, The Lomond Mile (1.6km) for the adventurers and 500m for the newbies.
There are several accommodation options in Franskraal, Uilenkraalsmond, Pearly Beach, Stanford, Hermanus and more. These areas are however busy during the December season so book your accommodation early. Try Airbnb or Gansbaai Tourism for a few ideas.
There is ample parking close to the venue and lots of food options supplied by Kauai and other vendors. Live music, lots of wine, beer and other refreshments will be available at the venue. Be sure to bring friends and family along to support you while doing this fun challenge.
