I'll be back

Bilgola was a great swim: tough surf to get through, a big swell (which aided greatly from the Apex buoy to the beach), and beautiful sunshine on this scenic beach...

I recall a Palm Beach Start some 10+ years ago when I was exhausted after getting through the surf, at which point I thought, "now I've got to swim 2.5 k ! "

Bilgola was not quite that rough... I'll be back.

Tough but good

What a start to the season! Wedding Cake Island, Coogee to Bondi and Bilgola – all tough but great ocean swimming and well done to the clubs for going ahead and running the races in the conditions... but most of all a big thank you to all the safety crew in and out of the water making sure we make it back to shore safely.

Jo-Anne

Very. Strong. Praise.

Coogee to Bondi was the greatest swim ever. Oops, I forgot the modern punctuation. the. greatest. swim. ever. Neil Rogers, you've wrecked it all. From here on every swim will be a disappointment. At least until C2B next year. May it happen. It's in my Glistening Dave calendar already. Crikey that sounds creepy. (Sorry Dave. Had to go there).

Glenn Muir

A real test

The hardest ocean swim I have done. A very strong north south current: not a day for the weekend plodders. A real test for the best ocean swimmers in the world.
Great work in putting this race together Olympic Swimming Hero Neil Rogers.
