Since its inception the annual swim has been organised by the Red Beach Club in conjunction with Roskill Master Swimmers.
More than 100 swimmers of all ages are expected to hit the water to cover either a 1.5km or 3km distance, with the course starting and finishing in front of the surf club. The minimum age for swimmers is 14 years and the wearing of wetsuits is optional.
The start time for the swim is 1.30 pm. Registrations can be made at the surf club from 12.00 noon.
A large number of spot prizes are on offer to all swimmers who take part. These will be drawn at the prize giving function in the Red Beach clubrooms at the conclusion of the swim.
