Bay Swim 2020 - Sunday Jan 19th
The Sorrento Bay Swim is a major fundraising
activity for the Sorrento Surf Life Saving Club. The 2020 event
will be the 17th year of the Bay Swim, and we will again be
offering the popular 4000m swim with the 2000m and 600m swim making
up the program on the day. Check out the starting times and
locations and course layouts for your preferred event.
As well as the
new 2000m straight-line course we used in 2019 from the picturesque
Tidways Beach, there will be a
NEW Elite 4000m Course Layout
which is also a straight line swim and tide
assisted from Camerons Bight to The Baths Jetty on Sorrento Foreshore
(there is an expectation that entrants will finish this course in
under an hour).
With entries expected to be around 700 swimmers, and catering for both elite athletes and novices of all ages, we are planning to deliver our best event yet in 2020.Registration will occur on the Sorrento Foreshore (near The Baths Restaurant) in the Finish Line area and swim briefings will be given in front of the Race Director’s tower in the same area. Courtesy buses will be available to transport entrants to the 2,000m and 4,000m start lines.
Sorrento and its beaches are one of the major tourist destinations in Victoria. The Surf Life Saving Club provides a valuable community service with a well-patrolled beach environment for locals and visitors to Sorrento back beach. This bay swim event assists Sorrento Surf Life Saving Club with its endeavors to keep our beach safe and provide the youth of the area with a Surf Awareness program to learn surf safety through our excellent junior surf program. The swim also assists to fund raise for important safety equipment such as rescue boards and inflatable rescue boats. Entry fees for 2020 are $40 for 600m and $70 for the 2000 & 4000m swims, and a discounted Entry Fee of $130 available for those wishing to compete in both the 2,000m & 4,000m swims on the day (early-bird discount available until 20th Dec 2019).
