Round North Head Classic
November 27, 2016 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am
Get this summer’s ocean swim calendar off to a flying start – join us for one of the most scenic of Auckland’s ocean swims – a 2.5km swim that starts in Windsor Reserve, Devonport, down past Torpedo Bay then hugging the coast around the towering North Head.
For those who prefer a shorter 1.2km swim, there is another course from Torpedo Bay to Balmain Reserve.
Bring your family and friends to the Round North Head Classic swim, organised by the Devonport Swim Club.
This classic ocean swim revives the popular community ocean swim instigated and run for a number of years by the Williamson brothers of Devonport.
Surf Life Saving New Zealand will provide all the safety on-water, with St John on hand for first aid. Fresh pastries, bacon butties, and refreshments will be supplied (to competitors and volunteers) on the finish line. There are spot prizes afterwards making for a fun event all round.
We encourage friends and family to walk the route along King Edward Parade and around North Head. Torpedo Bay Wharf also offers a great vantage point to observe swimmers’ progress.
Please check the website on the morning of the swim to check whether the swim is a GO or a NO GO.
1.2 km swimmers please register at Torpedo Bay Beach, Devonport from 8:00am
2.5 km swimmers please register at Windsor Reserve Beach, Devonport from 7:45am
