Other Event Info

Health & Safety

  • If you are not feeling well please do not attend
  • Try to observe a safe distance from other attendees
  • Hand sanitiser will be available at the start

Online entries only

All swimmers should have pre-registered, as this simplifies our processes on the day.

Water bottles

You should bring your own water bottle, however, water refills will be possible.


Apart from the requirement to obtain a cap and swim number, everyone should remain outside and at a safe social distance.

Gear Transfer

  • Gear can be transferred to the finish at Freshwater, and plastic bags are available so that nobody else needs to touch your possessions.
  • If you need to return to Curl Curl we recommend you use the Board-walk as there is limited scope to transfer swimmers safely by car.

Pre-swim Briefing

There will be a pre-swim briefing on the beach @ 8.15am to explain the course and any event specifics.

Start Categories

We have separated category starts to ensure we limit the number of competitors in close proximity. The first wave commences at 8:30 and each wave will be exactly 5 minutes apart.


This year there are no post-race presentations, and race results will be posted online.

    The event was very well organised: briefing was fine and transfer of gear to Freshwater worked well. Swim conditions were very good.

    Friendliest swim ever. Water safety was impeccable and everyone so supportive. Can’t wait till next year. Well done South Curly!

    Even the jellyfish were friendly – although a little sting on the lips at the start kept me vigilant all race. Well-organised and friendly swim – thank you South Curly and Freshie clubbies
