pak-n-saveTake the plunge, learn about water safety and have some fun!

This is a race just for the kids. It’s a great opportunity to learn new skills and develop swim confidence in a fun and safe environment.

Competitors will leave the beach at the left hand end of the course near the lighthouse, swim approximately 20m out to sea before turning right around a marker buoy. They will then swim along the beach to round a second marker buoy and head into the beach to the finish.

Every entrant will get a certificate.  There will be some spot prizes too, so come along and participate, there’ll be fun for all.
