North Steyne Ocean Swims – Celebrating 20 years!

webadmin Homepage news Leave a Comment

The North Steyne Ocean Swim is on again and we are celebrating 20 years! Join us on Sunday, 25 March 2018 for our 1km or 2.8km swims, or both.

The 1 km swim is a circuit north in front of the North Steyne club house, and the 2.8km treks from North Steyne across to Fairy Bower and Cabbage Tree Bay and return. The 2.8km, particularly, is a wonderful swim, especially at the end of March. It is without doubt one of the most enjoyable, variable swims on the calendar, traversing water that starts in an exposed beach break, crosses relatively calm seas with a swell rolling across from side to side, through the calm, sometimes gently surging waters of Cabbage Tree Bay, with all the reef and sea life that has to offer, then back across the bay to a beach break finish at North Steyne.

North Steyne is a friendly family-oriented event. And it’s a lovely day out.

Registrations commence at 8am at North Steyne SLSC. Starts are from the beach in front of the Club.
