    Excellent organisation – water safety in the very choppy and blustery conditions were 1st class – it was a pleasure and great fun to be part of the swim

    Well run event. Tough conditions. One gripe is that there should be clear rules about swim wear. Many of the swimmers were wearing neoprene buoyancy swim shorts.

    Hard to fault, great venue/location; vg course, straight out and back, and roughwater it was on the day with brisk offshore S Westerly? Much windier than recent training days. Good. Added spice. Well organised, well marshalled on the water by folk on boards. Buy not too busy.

    A fabulous experience of ocean swimming at its best, even in somewhat challenging conditions of waves, wind and tides! I felt very supported with so many lifesaving people on their boards at all locations during the swim, wonderful volunteers on registration to finishing line congratulations, and tasty food and power drinks…so well organized. Thanks so much🥰 My second Oz swim while on holidays😁

      Whole event from start to finish was smooth with minimal time waiting to get in and get ‘er done! Under difficult conditions of waves, wind and tide, I felt very safe with so many life-saving people on guard at all locations of the swim😀

    It was a very well organised event with attention to safety in the water and outside. Loved participating in it. It was my first ocean swim ever.

    Very well organised by North Bondi surf club and agree that water safety was excellent on a windy, choppy day.

    My first swim, so can’t compare, but I thought it was VERY well organised, and importantly I felt very safe in the water.
