This is the kind of journey swim that suits this time of year far better than high summer, with its prevailing nor'-easters and chop. With a bit of luck, there'll be a light offshore breeze blowing, smoothing the sea and the swell. It will be a great opportunity for a first hand geek on a really beautiful reef, with all its colours and sea life. The swim along the cliff from South Curly to the point at Freshwater is stunning.
Organisers say: "Approximately 2km 'destination swim' from South Curl Curl Beach around the headland to Freshwater Beach. Swimmers are provided with a fantastic course taking in a small amount of reef, a small amount of blue water, but mostly sandy bottom. Spectators will enjoy practically 100% views of the swim as they follow along the new walkway built along the Curly headland. "
Be aware, like many swims this season, this event will not take entries on race day. This means, all entries must be online through this page, with entries closing at 3pm on Saturday, May 1, 2021.

- Under 18 swimmers - Parents/guardians of swimmers aged under 18 must complete the online entry form, not the swimmers themselves. They must include their consent to the entry with full name and phone contact. Just a phone number, a first name, or a number and first name will not do. Entries of U18 swimmers are not complete without this complete parental/guardian consent. Entries of U18 swimmers must use the parent's email, address, not that of the U18 entrant.
- Conditions - This swim runs along the cliff from South Curl Curl to Freshwater. The course holds the peloton out to sea a little, avoiding the worst of the backwash from the swell bumping into the cliff. At this time of year, there's a good chance the wind will be offshore, however, and this will smooth conditions considerably. This is a glorious swim at its best, and an adventure, much like Tama-Cloey, when conditions are more difficult.
- Covid – There will be no Presentation and BBQ held. Gear transport will be provided to finish area but no competitor transport back to start will be available.
- Maximum entries - 300.
