Waterworx head coach Paul Sansby praised his swimmers for their impressive progression from the Brisbane Swimming Association open water competition to state level - and still impressing.

"That's a good effort from our small club,'' Sansby said.

Quality swimmers from around the state contested the multiple events, including Sunshine Coast competitors familiar with Lake Kawana conditions.

Waterworx's successful open water swimmers will return to regular competition now, including a trip to Bundaberg on November 23.
