Mark the end of the season with our very own South Maroubra Ocean Swim
It’s going to be a celebration as awesome as the swim itself, on Sunday April 23rd
For our annual ocean swim, we’re going all out to ensure a great day for swimmers of all abilities and their sun-loving supporters.
First up? a 500m swim for 9- to 12-year-olds at 8.30am.
We know how many amazing young swimmers we have in this club - so we hope there will be plenty of contenders in these home waters - some battling for line honours, others making memories as they complete their very first ocean swim. Sign them up!
The 1km swim will follow at 9.15am, for anyone aged 13 years and up.
Swimmers will head out near the rockpools, towards the first turning marker. It’s then only short swim north before turning back towards the surf club and the satisfaction of the finish line.
At 9.40am we will commemorate Anzac Day, just before the 2.5km swim at 10am.
Also open to anyone 13 years and over, the 2.5km course heads further along the Malabar Headland before the turning buoy. The next turn is in line with Maroubra SLSC, and swimmers will traverse back towards South Maroubra before catching a wave to the finish. Easy.
We’d like to thank in advance our volunteer base who will be out in force both on land and in the water on IRBs, boards and inshore, setting up a safe swim for all participants. All entry fees directly contribute to the purchase of vital lifesaving equipment.
Prizes are on offer for 1st, 2ndand 3rd prizes in all age categories as well as for elite swimmers, with the main presentation at 12 noon rounding out the formalities.
Of course we’ll have the BBQ firing from dawn, music all day with a live band from 12.30pm. And with massage tents and ice baths provided by Recoverie Coogee it’s clearly a healthy choice to stay around and make a day of it!
