Wellington Winter Champs

It's great to see all Pirates back into their swimming routine. Thanks to all swimmers and parents for a positive start to the term. I'm very excited about the next 2 weekends of racing at Wellington Champs. We have our biggest ever team competing with almost 80 Pirates racing.
