Ocean Swim

2018 South Curly Ocean Swim – Done and dusted

Congratulations and thanks to all swimmers who took the late change of course in their stride yesterday and re-located to the testing, there and back triangle from Freshwater Beach. 

The full results can be found here.

As communicated on the day, we had to switch to the back up plan when the council lifeguards deemed the conditions at South Curly too dangerous and closed the beach for the start of the race.  It wasn’t ideal, and our sincere apologies to all for any inconvenience or disappointment – we know you love the usual course around the headland, but it just wasn’t to be yesterday.  Nevertheless, 152 of you ran into the water at Freshie for the modified course which was roughly the same distance (still waiting on the official verdict on that).  The swell was deceptive and the current on the way back in proved challenging for many.  But the rain held off (mostly) and the water temperature was still beautiful. We’ve had a lot worse!

We welcomed some new faces to the winners podium with Kaye Logan taking out the overall honours in 20:47 minutes.

      

As always, we like to share the fun, so photos from the day can be viewed here.  All shots are available for purchase @ $10 per image (hi-res file), with all proceeds going to Sth Curly SLSC. Use the Payment tab above, include ‘Ocean Swim Photo & your name’ in the details & send a copy of the receipt to vivienne@maviimages.com.au with your request.

Our thanks to all involved in putting on the race; all the club members responsible for the admin, registrations, bbq, bar, water safety, bag drop, lost property, start & finish line etc etc; the Fukers for their top-class post race entertainment (they never fail to get the crowd going) and of course our sponsors, in particular Freshwater Community Bank – Bendigo Bank and Allan Hall.

We’re already looking forward to next year!

 

Race Information

The South Curl Curl Surf Life Saving Club annual ‘Ocean Swim’ Classic is an approximately 2km swim from South Curl Curl Beach, around the headland to Freshwater Beach. Swimmers are provided with a fantastic course taking in a small amount of reef, a small amount of blue water, but mostly sandy bottom. Spectators will enjoy practically 100% views of the swim as they follow along the walkway built along the Curly headland. Once the swim is completed, join your hosts back at the South Curly SLSC for a BBQ and presentations.
