Barney Mullins Swim Classic at Freshwater Beach

From Openwaterpedia

Barney Mullins Swim Classic at Freshwater Beach is a 1.5 km ocean swim in Sydney, Australia. The race up until 2007 was restricted to Freshwater SLSC members.

Namesake[edit]

The Barney Mullins Swim Classic is named after Freshwater SLSC Life Member and Freshwater swim legend George ‘Barney’ Mullins. Barney passed away in October 1995 and his son George travels from Queensland each year to attend race day.

Location[edit]

Freshwater is one of Sydney’s most beautiful northern beaches and is generally protected from some of the larger swells by its north and south headland. White sands and crystal clear water help to ensure an enjoyable swim to be had by all.
