Saturday ocean swims

Saturday ocean swims were originally designed for Vladswim clients as part of training and open water swim preparation for long distance ocean swim events. In the past, traditionally open water swimmers who have attended these ocean swim sessions have been training for NSW events such as the Vladswim Challenge (5km,10km), 5km Cole Classic race or the South Head Rough Water (Bondi to Watson's Bay) challenge and those preparing for marathon distance events like the Rottnest Channel(20km) or Seven Channels swims.

Our Saturday ocean swims are now also open to all members who love open water swimming and want to join us for support, motivation and swimming buddies. These ocean swims are held on Saturdays at various Sydney locations including Brighton Le Sands, eastern suburbs beaches from La Perouse to Bondi Beach, and also north shore beaches at Balmoral and Shelly to Manly.

Start getting Saturday Ocean Swim emails

The emails are sent out usually on Fridays before the event. The email holds information about the upcoming Saturday swim detailing its location, start time, meeting place, duration of the swim and coaches that will attend.
