Join the Docks
On your marks, open-water swimmers! Test your resilience with 10km or 5km races stretching across both docks, or compete in the more forgiving 1500m. This challenging swim with a stunning backdrop is a worthy goal for experienced swimmers. The 1500m is open to 12-16-year-olds; other competitors must be 16 or over.
