North Bondi ClearView Ocean Swim
18/12/2021 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am
The North Bondi ClearView Ocean Swim is a great opportunity to blow off the cobwebs before the Xmas rush.
As part of the event, there are two swims to take on: a 1km and a 2km. With the way the event is structured, it is possible to take on both swims if you’re especially motivated. You can also register for the ClearView’s sister swim, the North Bondi Ocean Classic, which will be held on the 13th of February.
1 swim: $45
2 swims – in a single event or across both the ClearView and Ocean Classic : $70
3 swims – across both the ClearView & Ocean Classic: $90
4 swims – across both the ClearView & Ocean Classic: $100
It’s an event that can attract hundreds of competitors, so make sure you get in early.
Both the 1km and 2km courses are fairly straightforward, following the buoys around as you swim out from the North Bondi Surf Lifesaving Club.
North Bondi Beach itself is only a moderately hazardous beach. It’s partially protected by Ben Buckler headland, and reduces wave height to 1m at the northern end. The further south you go down the beach, the possibility of bigger surf and tricky rips increases. The exact path the North Bondi Roughwater follows has the potential to change, depending on conditions on the day.
1km Ocean Swim
The 1km course (starting from 9.00am) is a smaller, replica of the main 2km swim that sits squarely inside the bay, not quite reaching the far flung corners like the 2km. Use this as your main goal, or go long by using it as a warm up to the 2km.
2km ocean swim
The 2km course (starting from 10.00am) starts in front of the North Bondi Surf Life Saving Club and reaches into every corner of the bay before returning to the same spot on the beach.
