    Wonderful morning! So fun and so Australian seeing all the swimmers get out there in the ocean and submerge themselves into the sea! Thank you…we loved it and will be back!

    Thank you very much for hosting a very enjoyable swim. I was a very late entry and appreciated the patience of the volunteers. That and everything else about the swim was great and I look forward to it next year!

    The 2km is great distance for an ocean swim at the Newport Pool to Peak. Well run event by the organisers of Newport SLSC – a great team effort by the members associated with all the work that would go in behind the scenes. See you again next year, all being well, for my 3rd event swim. Cheers.

    Great value. I reflected on what I got for my (below average) entry fee:
    1.A well organised swim that started on time
    2. Ample water safety that seemed to be everywhere
    3. Computer timing with prompt results
    4. Plenty of post finish fruit
    5. Prompt presentation with valuable lucky draw prizes ( thank you for my new pair of flippers)
    6. Friendly and efficient volunteers covering registration, bag drop , bbq etc etc

    What more could you want? Congratulations Newport on doing it yet again

    What mitre

    Very well organised swim. Newport Beach was a really nice beach and the 2km swim was challenging. Would recommend.

    Wasn’t too big an event. Was well organised and people were really friendly. Is great for beginners and those who want to test there skills at a longer swim.

    Thank you Newport SLSC for hosting the event. It was extremely well organised. This was only my second ocean swim, the other was 28 years ago. Thank you to the absolute gentleman who gave me some great advice and encouragement to give it a go. I neglected to get his name. I will be at the next event at Bilgola for sure.

    A very well organised event. Well done Newport. One of the best ocean swims across the Swim calendar.

    Great event. Loads of water safety, particularly noting the bigger shore break. Post race fruit was great. Volunteers well organised at registration. Very enjoyable and water temp was great.

    One suggestion for improvement would be a periodic, repeated announcement of the course prior to races. Noting that all 3 courses were set out at once and the 800 was slightly different from the picture on the beach. Also, best plan would be showing each course all on one plan (same way it looks out on the water if all courses are set out at the start).
