We made it! Seven sea swims so far this month. Our minimum number of seven for every 2016 month has so far been reached. The air temperatures have not been that bad for winter.
The winter Wellington Harbour sea temp at the moment is about 13.3c. I was at the Aquatic Centre a couple of years ago and a notice read, "Our pool temp is usually about 28c. Sorry, but today it's only 23c. Brrrrhhh..."
