The Hotondo Homes Broulee Bay to Breakers Ocean Swim is a 1.4km ocean water swim from Shark Bay on Broulee Island out to the ocean and around the headland to the South Broulee (Bengello) Beach.
The 1.4km and 500m ocean swim events offer something for the young, the new-comers, or well-seasoned veterans.
This ocean swim is run by the volunteers of Broulee Surfers Surf Life Saving Club. Conditions can vary from a peacefully calm swim to south-easterly chop and swell making for a challenging swim. If the conditions are judged to be risky the swim is moved to an alternative, safer site.
The event will be subject to Government and SLS NSW COVID 19 requirements. As the requirements are updated the website will be updated. If the event is cancelled the registration fee will be refunded.
