06 Feb Ocean Classic Swim Cancelled
Dear North Bondi SLSC Classic Ocean swimmers,
It is with much disappointment that we announce the cancellation of tomorrow’s North Bondi Classic Swim due to the current official forecast of deteriorating weather and sea conditions.
We would like to express our gratitude for your continued support of our club’s fundraising swims over the last couple of seasons.
The North Bondi Classic Ocean Swim is one of our major fundraising events and we have made every effort to ensure this year’s swim could go ahead.
We have deferred our decision for as long as we can but unfortunately the conditions are forecast to worsen, and by tomorrow become extremely challenging with strong winds, low visibility, poor water quality and increasing swell. In the interests of safety for all swimmers and water safety volunteers, we have had to cancel this event for 2020. This decision was not taken lightly and we have followed SLS advice and consulted with the Lifeguards.
We regret that due to the financial and administrative costs already incurred by the club, we are unable to offer rollover entries for this swim.
Again, we apologize for any inconvenience caused and we look forward to your continued support.
