Annual ocean swim at Terrigal

The Terrigal Surf Club will host its annual ocean swim fundraiser this Easter long weekend.

On Saturday, April 3, the event will include a 1km swim kicking off at 9am, and a 2km swim at 10am.

Chair of the Committee, Wendy Walsh, said this is the club’s 20th annual ocean swim.

“We get around 300 to 400 people each year,” Walsh said.

“A lot of people come from out of town, which is nice.

“It is a day for the whole family.

“All of the money raised goes towards keeping the club ticking over.”

The swim course is not decided until the day, and this is the first time timing devices will be used for the event.

Accom Properties is the sponsor of the event and will host a raffle on the day.

Registration costs $25 for the 1km, $30 for the 2km, or $40km for both swims.
