Congratulations to all of the winners for 2009.
This year marked the 23nd anniversary of Eagle's sponsorship of the Bays and Rangitoto Swims. The late Trevor Eagle was a member of the Ponsonby Swim Club and was instrumental in establishing the swims in the early '80s with Bert and Mamie Raper.
Thanks as always go to the Coastguard (Northern Region), Auckland Canoe Club, St John's Ambulance and and members of Onehunga Swim Club and Eastern Bays Sea Scouts.
Eagle Technology will continue to sponsor the swims and encourage you all to enter the next season's events.
