Whether you are a seasoned veteran or a newcomer to ocean swimming, we have an event for you.
The event is in it’s 30th year and is organised by volunteers, most of whom are members of the Balmoral Beach Club. However the entire local community get behind the event to make it happen. From Mosman Council, to HMAS Penguin, to the Balmoral Sea scouts, all supported by our sponsors; Gold - Audi Mosman, Dexus & URM, Silver - Jeckra & Medilab, Bronze - Edney Ryan and Oceanswims.com. Community engagement continues to grow. This year internationally acclaimed artist Ken Done has generously designed swimsuits which capture the unique Balmoral landscape. Also check out the winners podium constructed by Mosman Men’s shed. We will also have a fun selfie wall to help all competitors spread the word about the work Children’s Cancer Institute.
