The North Steyne Ocean Swim is on again on Sunday, 31 March 2019. This annual swim is not to be missed, and in its 21st year is one of the most popular on the Northern Beaches.
There are 2 swims – 1.0km and 2.8km. Both swims begin in front of the North Steyne Club House with the 1.0km turning towards Queenscliff, and the 2.8km heading to Fairy Bower and Cabbage Tree Bay.
The North Steyne Ocean Swim is a friendly family-oriented event, and it’s a great day out.
Registration can be done on-line at www.oceanswims.com or on the day at North Steyne from 8:00-10:00am.
