Tilbury Classic Open Water Swim
An Easter Saturday institution, the Tilbury Classic is a spectacularly beautiful swim around a beautiful headland through some fascinating water, with lots of life, swells surging over reefs, etc. It's a lot of fun. When we first did this swim, dolphins put on a display in the break to welcome us during the race briefing. Culburra is one of those cul-de-sac towns that most people would not normally get to. Ocean swimming gets us there, though, and that's reason enough alone to be a fine ocean swimmer.
The Tilbury Classic is a stunning swim through some exciting water: a beach break at one end and a quiet cove at the other, and in between a point girt by reefs on the way through. Tilbury Cove offers an excellent fallback course if seas don't co-operate on swim day.
Stuff you need to know...
Culburra Beach is where Max Dupain "snapped" his photograph of The Sunbather, the bloke sunbaking face down on the beach.
All entrants are offered Brunch at the completion of the event.
