Coach Sarah Thorner
Water World Swim New Zealand

Sarah was born and bred in New Zealand and is currently based in the capital city, Wellington. Growing up in a small country surrounded by ocean played a huge part in Sarah’s love of the water and ocean swimming. Sarah played waterpolo for five years and participated in survival swimming classes from a young age. She completed her first Alcatraz crossing in 34 minutes and her second (the next day) in 1 hour and 4 minutes, giving her a greater appreciation for the strong currents in the Bay. Sarah has recently renewed her passion for swimming and can be found in Wellington harbour every Sunday morning despite the below 10 degree winter water temperatures. She is looking forward to the summer season and organizing group swims in the Wellington region. Sarah also provides beginner coaching sessions at the Wellington Regional Aquatic Centre.
