Wakatipu Yacht Club relay

Young sailors from the Wakatipu Yacht Club stayed in their boats on Lake Tewa on Sunday, as their peers, competing in the Outside Sports Classic Hits end-of-school triathlon/duathlon, swam up to 250m in the chilly waters.

The sailors cruised to, around and back from an island in the lake before handing their boats to waiting team members.

The relay, usually raced at Kelvin Peninsula, is held every Sunday for nearly two months before Christmas.
