2013 Sydney Skinny[edit]

Over 750 people swam on 17 February 2013 for the inaugural Sydney Skinny under a sparkling summer day and a fabulous crowd who were eager and excited to get down to Cobblers Beach and enjoy the fun. The conditions in the water were calm and many swimmers have said The Sydney Skinny was their first ocean swim and that they were so thrilled to have completed the course in their birthday suit.


Cobblers Beach at Middle Head, is the perfect setting for a short 900m skinny swim on a beautiful Sunday morning. The waterway is protected from the ocean swell and is the perfect location for new swimmers or those who have never swam the distance in open water.
