    Two challenging swims especially getting past the break – the hardest part.
    Distances over the advertised however I know its to give us all the extra buzz from achieving more than we set out to!
    Organisation at both beaches and in between exceptional. Audio at Warriewood a bit difficult . to hear.
    Missing the fruit and snakes sugar hit at the end.
    Well done MV Surf Club helpers, a huge thank you to the water safety who endured the southerly swell and cooler temps. Your assistance out there much appreciated.

    A spectacular set of swims at the beautiful Warriewood and Monavale beaches. Rounding the point into the basin is a great feeling. Extremely well organised thanks to everyone involved.

    A wonderfully organised event and water safety crew were amazing! Thank you! I was the last to finish in the 1km event and I had a lovely SLSC lady who accompanied me all the way through the course. Wishing Mona Vale SLSC all the best in completing the club renovations and fit outs, and looking forward to next year’s event

    Disappointed that the 70+ Age Group (and I see also the 65-69 Age Group) were dropped from proceedings. I like to see how I’m going against guys my age (like the other ‘Pittwater’ Ocean Swims (and just about every other Ocean Swim). I don’t need a medal or a certificate, just a result.
    The race itself though was well run and well managed

    Amazing swim, fantastic staff, really well organised, we started on time, there was so much support in the sea along the route, and a clearly marked route to see, despite the small bout of poor sea conditions! This was my first ocean swim and I can’t wait to do it again! (Hopefully a little more shade next year though… #burnt!)
