The 2019 Byron Bay Property Sales Ocean Swim Classic will be held on Sunday 5th May 2019, check-in at 7am at the surf club.
This is our 32nd Classic and our 12th Mini Swim.
Donations from 2018 swim were $76,000 to 21 various charitable organisations. Total money raised is now $901,000 since our original swim.
The Byron Bay Property Sales Ocean Swim Classic is approximately 2.2 from Wategos Beach to Main Beach, Byron Bay. The Classic is a buoyed course from the start area, around The Pass and across the Bay to Main Beach.
The Byron Bay Mitre 10 Mini Swim, is designed for those who can competently swim approximately 800m from Clarkes Beach to Main Beach. It is to encourage participants to put a toe in the water (so to speak) and draw in more swimmers who may not be as experienced or as confident as the Classic swimmers.
