More than 400 swimmers have already registered for Sunday’s ocean swim from Coalcliff to Stanwell Park.
The 2.3km Stanwell Park Ocean Challenge has attracted entrants from as far away as Port Macquarie, and promises to be quite a spectacle as the swimmers wind their way past the bridge and along the coast
Organiser Andrew Perrin says the spectacular scenery and the clear water helps take the swimmers minds off the endurance element. “We’ve even had turtle sightings in the past,” he says. “Swimmers should breath to the left so they can enjoy the magnificent escarpment as they swim!”
There will be food and entertainment at the finish-line, Stanwell Park-Helensburgh Surf Club, and spectators are warmly welcomed along the way.
The race starts at Coalcliff 10 and with competitors lining up from 9am.
