|People hanging out at Banfield Park|
Most of the day there were 30 to 40 people in the water and another 50 to 80 people on land at Curtis Point. I think it was a decent turn out for a low key community event. I tried to talk to as many people as I could to ask them if they had been swimming in the Gorge before. About 2/3s of the people had never done so before which means one of the goals of the Swim Fest was met, getting more local people in the water.

|Banfield Park Dock|
The Banfield Park location is sort of hidden away at the north west corner of the park and not very connected to the rest of the park though it does have a very nice dock to swim from.
We did not check out the swimming at Esquimalt Gorge Park so I have no report of what it was like.
I could see from the 100" dock from the GVHA that there were upwards of 10 people on the dock at Tillicum bridge where I normally swim
