Photo: PATRICK HAMILTON Tides tricky for racers A hundred and eight starters faced testing conditions in the annual Eyebright Mile swim last Squance of Ruby Bay was third in 25min 48sec. The race got challenging after swimmers left the shelter of Haulashore Island, striking stronger winds which opposed an increasing outward tide. With the tide far from full, the rocks off Magazine Point were close to the surface and some swimmers brushed their knuckles on them. In 13th place overall, Pip Dwyer (28.37) was the first woman, followed by Grace Woodall (28.57) and Kerry Mathieson (30.31). In the short race of 1300m from the Richardson St steps, Jo Perrott raced away with the win in 25min 9sec, ahead of Jane Alloway (26.53), Ed Steenbergen (27.23), Lauren Ching (27.52), Jaimee Erskine (31.18) and Gray Elder (35.32).
