Icebergers Excel in Cinque Terre

Melinda Kemp, Nic & Stef Desira have participated in recent swims at the Cinque Terra, Italy. All three of our swimmers swam around Palmaria Island – a distance of 7 kms. Mt Martha Iceberger Johnny Lauretta also participated in this swim – John is a regular participant in the Icebergers winter Pier to Pub swim. Melinda and Nic also raced in a 1.5 km swim at Moneglia on Saturday 8th September with Mel being the second female across the line and Nic the third fastest male. Every swimmer rings a bell on completing the swim.

A huge Italian feast follows the event with wine, beer, pizza and cake! The races are local celebrations and the Australians are very warmly welcomed!
