Beach2buoy Race Day Schedule

We're thrilled to welcome you to the inaugural Beach2Buoy Swim hosted by the Strand Lifesaving Club this Sunday! As you may know, this event is not only an exciting swim but also a charity fundraiser for the club, with 50% of your entry fee going directly to the lifesaving club.

Here's a rundown of how the day will unfold:

Event Schedule:

  • Registration opens at 7:00 AM.
  • First swims (1km,2km,3km) begin at 9:00 AM.

  • Directions HERE 

Activities During Registration:

  • While you register, enjoy food trucks, coffee vendors and more to keep you fueled and entertained.
  • The course will be set up during this time.

The Swim Course:

  • The course will be a triangular swim, with the direction determined on the day based on weather conditions.
  • It's a straightforward one-kilometre loop: start on the beach, swim out approximately 400m, across 200m and then back in 400m.
  • For those doing longer distances (2km or 3km), you'll simply repeat this loop accordingly.
  • Please indicate your chosen distance when you register, so we can mark your hand with a 1, 2, or 3 accordingly.
  • A race briefing will be held at 8:45 AM at the water's edge to confirm the swim direction and course details.

 After the Swim:

  • Upon completing your swim, refreshments will be waiting for you outside the pen.
  • If you're participating in the relay, please be ready around 10:30 AM. We aim to start on time, but slight delays may occur.

 Prizes and Activities:

  • There will be a lucky draw for prizes starting at 11:15 AM or shortly after the relay ends.
  • Prizes include items from Orca, Natural Energy, Sportsman's Warehouse, and more.
  • Don't forget to apply sunscreen! We'll have a brand on hand to assist.

 Additional Information:

  • Please wear bright-coloured swim caps for visibility in the water. Dark colours are hard to spot, especially if the weather turns windy.
  • Stick around after the event to explore the lifesaving club and learn more about open water swimming opportunities in the area.
