- Results in the Paper
We understand that many swimmers were expecting to see a printed results guide for the 2013 GMHBA Lorne Pier to Pub in the Sunday Herald Sun this year, as in the past. Unfortunately the Sunday Herald Sun was not in a position to commit to running these results and both the Sunday Herald Sun and the Club apologise for disappointing many of our swimmers. Please be advised that the full results were published in the Geelong Advertiser on Monday January 14 and are available on the Club website.

Victorian Sam Sheppard makes it three crowns- as Queensland’s Eliza Smith makes debut
12/Jan Sam Sheppard of North Ringwood swam his way to his third GMHBA Lorne Pier to Pub Swim in just (12:29) ahead of Isaac Johns (12:37) and Jack Moyes (12:53).
It was a worth-while trip from Broadbeach, Queensland for Eliza Smith who finished first with a time (13:03) ahead of her local Queensland rival Jess Walker (13:05) in a tight finish and a run up the beach.
The flat conditions; were influenced only by the tide- leaving it open as anyone’s race. The Open Men’s race started with swimmers choosing their path to victory ranging from wide berth on the course to hugging path of the coastline. It was the half way mark where the top 3 in the men aiming for their place in history made their move- the local favourite Tristan Read, race favourite Sam Sheppard and last year’s junior boy first placegetter Issac Jones.
Read trailed off and it was a race of two -Jones and Sheppard. Sheppard had plenty to give and it was his experience and strength that saw the champion hit the wave zone and push ahead with a powerful wade. Sheppard won the race with an impressive lead over Jones. A fitting second place for Jones who gained insightful experience in the GMHBA Lorne Pier to Pub open men this year. Especially given Jones earlier that day won the junior boys in 12:45.
The open women was always going to be a tight race it was a fight to the end with two swimmers battling it out with Smith and Walker finishing seconds apart.
Next years swim wil be on on Saturday 11 January 2014
