New Zealand Open Water Swimming Championships

The New Zealand Open Water Swimming Championships is organized annually in January by Swimming New Zealand at the Lake Taupo Yacht Club.

Per FINA rules enacted in 2017, this event allows wetsuits when the water temperature is below 20C. This was the case in 2017, 2018, 2020, and 2022. Wetsuit swims are not eligible for this database, so these years are not included here. The 2019 and 2021 Championships exceeded the temperature threshold, so swimmers competed in textile swimwear.
