The Jamieson family of Hataitai are
planning an assault on the State
Capital Classic Ocean Swim series,
which kicks off at 7.30am on
Father Ross, mother Joanne,
Jake, 15, Jessica, 13, and Anabel, 8,
are all enthusiastic swimmers.
Mr Jamieson said his was a very
The kids keep us young because
we re keeping up with them, he
Jake and his father compete in
triathlons, but swimming is the com-
mon sport the whole family share.
The children learned to swim at
the age of 4 and luckily they all took
to it, Mr Jamieson said.
There will be four distances to
choose from in Sunday s ocean swim
-- 3.3km, 1km, 300 metres and a
200-metre shallow swim for children
Mr Jamieson said that Jake
smashes us all and would be swim-
ming the lengthy 3.3km.
Ross, Joanne and Jessica are com-
peting in the 1000m.
With us all swimming very simi-
lar times, the family sledging has
started already. Last year I beat
Jess by 10 seconds or so, so she is out
to set the record straight!
The Jamiesons are seasoned ocean
Jake s been doing the Capital
Classic for the last four years and
won his age group last year in the
3.3km race. Jessica has done the last
three and Anabel participated in her
first Ocean Swim last year, said Mr
Jamieson, who has competed for the
past two years.
While holidaying in Wairarapa the
week before the competition, the
Jamiesons had a chance to train
While The Wellingtonian was
interviewing Mr Jamieson, the rest
of the family were out on a run.
Ocean Swim Series event director
Scott Rice said the series was all
about giving it a go.
We hope the commitment and
enthusiasm for swimming shown by
competitors like the Jamieson family
will encourage other swimming fam-
ilies of all ages and abilities to take
part, he said.
With the races taking place at dif-
ferent times, the Jamiesons will be
able to cheer each other on.
Races start at either Frank Kitts
Park or Freyberg Beach and finish
at Oriental Bay Beach. The Capital
Classic is one of the six events in the
national ocean swim series.

What do you do when you can t find
a good baby and parent activity
class? Wellington mothers Linda
Cardiff and Kate Day were faced
with this problem, so decided to
start their own classes last April.
Tiny Adventures runs weekly
45-minute classes for crawlers and
Mrs Cardiff said they tried out
other classes around the city, but
none were exactly what they were
We went to a few singing clas-
ses, but we couldn t find one that
had everything we enjoyed all in
one, she said.
The singing classes were just
singing and activity classes were
just that. We couldn t find one
doing both. At the time Kate and I
had young children, so we decided
to start our own classes.
Each week s class has a different
theme and is structured around
activities that will capture and
stimulate a baby s interest, includ-
ing music, movement activities,
relaxation and massage.
When you re a first-time mum
you can get a bit lonely, Mrs Car-
If you have something that you
can go to every week and talk to
other new mothers it s great. They
get that from us and the other
parents in the group.
Someone to say, That s normal,
it will pass . And to give them ways
of playing with their baby at home.
