Run by Stockton SLSC, this classic Newcastle swimming event will be stopping harbour traffic again for the only legal time you can experience swimming from shore to shore! In this event you can either swim one way from Stockton to Queens Wharf in a social swim (700m), or to Stockton and back (1400m). The single crossing event begins at 10am, the double at 11am – ferries will take swimmers to the start of the 700m, leaving from Newcastle every 20 mins from 8:30am. Entry (14yrs+) is $55 for the main event/both swims; or $35 single crossing ($25 12–13yrs). Enter online at www.oceanswims.com or on the day (January 26) until half an hour before your event. Prize money is even on offer for the fastest male and female swimmers – so get training!
