Among the many highlights at the 10th Malabar Magic day (February 2018) – an event inclusive of all abilities – was the terrific achievement of the Magic Rainbows and the Sutherland All Stars. Teams of Rainbow Club members and teachers lined up with the with the other participants and each swam 1km. Their team effort raised $12,287 for Rainbow Club.
The Magic Rainbows journey to Malabar began in November 2017 when 13CABS drove them to the launch event at the Andrew Boy Charleton Pool. In the pool they received tips from Olympian Dawn Fraser AC MBE, Paralympian Louise Sauvage and retired Australian Swim Captain Matthew Abood. Joined by the Premier of NSW Gladys Berjiklian our Magic Rainbows cut the 10th Anniversary Malabar Magic birthday cake.
In January 2018, training increased with Sunday beach sessions coached by Arthur Cooke and Suellen Symons. Finish line honours were taken out by Will Hutchison (Hornsby Rainbow Club).
