Cruising In Style In The Open Water

Cruising In Style In The Open Water

Event director Glenn Taylor and the organisers of the First National Kimberly Lake Argyle Swim pay attention to friends, family, media and spectators as well as the competitors in the 10 km and 20 km race in Lake Argyle in Western Australia.

The race offers 3 separate opportunities to watch the 10 km and 20 km races:

At 7 am, there is an Early Bird Cruise offered by Lake Argyle Cruises that departs from the Lake Argyle Boat Ramp to the 20 km race start. Besides enjoying the beauty of the large lake in the early morning hours, a light breakfast is served on the 2+ hour cruise.

At 9 am, there is a Morning Tea Cruise offered by Lake Argyle Cruises that departs to the 10 km race start. Morning team is served as the spectators make their way to the start on this 2-hour cruise.

At 11:30 am, there is a Finish Line Cruise where the spectators are treated to watching the field compete in action before cruising to the finish line where, in a brilliant touch of ingenuity, the boat is anchored and serves as the official finish boat. Upon crossing the line, the swimmers will board the vessel for a quick celebration before heading off in their team boat. While non-alcoholic drinks are served, the bring-your-own-lunch cruise truly engages the spectators as the fans, family and friends stay onboard until their team reaches the finish.
