What to Expect...

Come along to Alex SLSC in the middle of Winter to show your support for the Community.
This year Alex Rotary and Alex SLSC have got together to run the Winter Solstice Swim legs in aid of the Sunshine Coast Community helpers.
We're usually guaranteed beautiful Sunshine Coast weather for the swims which are a great opportunity to shake off those mid - winter blues with a dip in the ocean in front of the Alex SLSC.

The courses

All the courses will be clearly marked in the bay by buoys. Thank you Mooloolaba Yacht club for the loan of their huge YACHT BUOYS. There will be SLSC wardens on the course and will follow the stragglers in to the finish. 
All swims start and finish on the beach in front of the SLSC. You will be able to time yourself to check your personal best.
We are still investigating how best to do the timing, but its unlikely it will be via anklets as per previous swims. We're working on alternatives.
Different courses will have different colour caps.
  • The 1 km, 3km and 5Km swim should only be attempted by very experienced ocean swimmers and if you have any reservations, please discuss your concerns with the swim captain on the day. 
  • The swimmers will be set off in order
  • There will be a safety briefing prior to swim starts.
  • The course may be changed by the SLSC to suit the conditions on the day
