It is quite a spectacular event with thousands of fans along the course as well as following the race in “party boats” beating drums, cheering, cranking music, dressing up silly, etc.
Nova Masters swimmer Lexie Kelly is featured in the clips and finished 6th in the female division with a time of 9 hours and 32 minutes.
