Race Information

Unfortunately, the Beachside Radiology Coffs Ocean swims have been cancelled for 2020, due to the coronavirus pandemic.

As of Monday, March 16, 2020 the Federal Government has issued a warning advising people to avoid mass gatherings of 500+ people in an attempt to reduce the spread of the virus.

We are currently seeking Committee Approval to run the 2021 ocean swim on 28th March, 2021 and will confirm this date in the upcoming days.

Once again, Sawtell SLSC sincerely apologises for the interruption to this event. We all hope you understand that this is beyond our control.

More details will follow in the coming days.
Thanks for your support and understanding,

Sawtell SLSC
