Smackerels swim at Merewether and meet at the tables near Merewether Baths on weekday mornings at 6.30am and weekend mornings at 7:00am.
Our regular swim, when conditions permit, is to jump off the back of the Baths and swim out past the breakers north to Dixon Park Beach, past the surfers returning to Merewether Beach, about 1.5km return. Longer distances and different routes depend on conditions.
The entry to the ocean is from a rock shelf. There can be no change of mind or return to the rocks, once in the ocean and it’s a 700m swim around the rocks to the Beach if you change your mind.
During winter some of us swim with Merewether Mackerals Winter Swimming Club at 7:45 in the Baths and occasionally head to the Ocean afterwards.
Our name is derived from being Summer Mackerals….Smackerals!
