blueseventy Golden Goggles Hall of Fame: Derek Eaton

Derek Eaton is one of our golden guys.  He’s completed four full seasons of the State New Zealand Ocean Swim Series and doesn’t show any signs of stopping soon.

Age: 73

First event: 2009 Corsair Classic (now known as La Grande Swim)

Favourite event: Bay of Islands Classic

Why we love him:  He’s won his age group every year since 2009 and even at the ripe age of 73 he still loves the incentive to keep training, and stay fit and healthy.

Good on you Derek, keep it up!
