    Our 2km Ocean Swim starts in the northern corner of North Curl Curl Beach, with swimmers having to wade/swim 150m to the 1st marker buoy before they make a left hand turn and commence the swim north towards Dee Why.

    After approx 500m swimmers will pass half way marker buoy and take a right turn followed by another right turn on the T shapes course, heading back south towards South Curl Curl to make another right hand turn manouver.

    Swimmers then round the bottom marker buoy and swim back to the gate they started at and make their way back to the beach, completing the course back in front of the North Curl Curl club house.

    Note: Race organisers may alter the course on race day due to prevailing conditions

    There is $800 in prize money on offer for Male and Female place getters, so come and enjoy our swim.
