History: A 10km ocean swim from North Bondi Beach heading along the coastline to South Head, then into Sydney Harbour to the finish at Watson's Bay, almost all of it along shoreline of sheer cliffs. It's one of those swims that requires absolute commitment.
This is some of the most exposed coastline in Australia, beaten by the weather, by the elements, by the ocean and by the trade-winds. There is no shelter from the prevailing conditions on swim day.
