Christmas decorations are starting to go up around the Northern Beaches, so its time to bring out the Christmas rashies and cozzies. Jacqui is modelling the new Cancer Council Christmas Cockatoo Rashie (say that three times quickly) which is only just out - a great Xmas present for us all... Continue reading

Beautiful conditions for this morning's swim - no rays like yesterday but we did have whales breaching as we arrived back at Manly - they must have heard about our belated party for Errol. Yesterday was Errol Abbot's 81st birthday. Errol is a regular B&Ber and celebrated today at Shelly... Continue reading

Inappropriate LesBubs. Our Shauny has way more class and pulling power
Last week Pete taught us about resistance - well today despite there being a power blackout at MSLC for the early birds and no coffee till just before 7, there was no resistance by our swimmers. No wetsuits for these champs for a 6.30 dip. Sue and Inge were also... Continue reading

This morning was just one of those special mornings. I know we say it a lot but with calm, clear seas and a sunrise like this how can it not put you a good mood for the rest of the day. The yogi's getting their zen on. Ted, Val and... Continue reading

If you decided to skip this morning's swim then then you missed out on an a great one. The waves were just the way I like them - relatively flat and while the water temperature was down a bit, it was great company and a spectacular way to start the... Continue reading

Nice blog Pete and nice work JK on 2000km - word has it he swam through an arch in the water at the point on his way home
Email Ian at and he will be able to help you get sorted :-)
Next week marks week seven in the winter badge challenge. The challenge, for those that don't know is to swim and log 20 swims over 7 different weeks during June, July and August. If you are really game, you can do it without a wetsuit for an extra www badge.... Continue reading

The photo was taken by Lainey - she is such a whizz with the camera
This morning was still a little lumpy with some nice wave sets to make our morning swim out from Manly Beach a little interesting. Water temperature was a lovely 19.3 - thanks John, our resident temperature taker - we like that one, can we keep it around here for the... Continue reading

I am so sorry that I called you Nicola - whoops
This morning was yet another spectacular sunrise, spectacular conditions and spectacular company as we celebrated Gemma and Nicola's birthday's, spotted plenty of duskies, old wives, flatheads, wobbys and other sealife. With Ian and Pauline away celebrating the wedding of their son, JK was doing on management duties, welcoming new swimmers... Continue reading

Yes, check he has a new cap tomorrow
Clearly you are no longer part of the inner sanctum if you haven't been invited to the "WOW" area
Well its official - winter is definitely just around a the corner and this morning proved it with our first swim of the year where the water temperature was under 20 degrees - who do we talk to about warming things up again!!! Despite the brisk chill in the air... Continue reading

I know we always here how today was the swim was the best this year - while today probably wasn't the best I've had this year, it was certainly up there. There was a cool nip in the air to remind us that winter is coming, yet the water was... Continue reading

Lovely blog Jenny and certainly a lot to see. We even got to see the turtle coming up for air. The duskies were so close to the shore as well
Toggle Commented Mar 28, 2017 on 28/3/17 Lovely and Calm today at Pacific Jules
Not one Lainey but two swimming together.
Today was, without doubt, the best day's swim we've had in weeks. While even yesterday we were still dealing with the washup from storms which seem to have gone on forever, today it was perfect, very little waves, crystal clear waters and plenty of fish out to play. Even the... Continue reading

Great blog Pete - plenty to see today - saw the eagle rays on the move but still haven't seen the turtle - think I need to go swimming with the turtle whisperers Elaine and Edwina
After a couple of days of rain and lumpy seas today things had settled down quite a bit. We are all bracing ourselves for the heatwave that is about to hit us over the next few days but what better way to cool down than a beautiful swim from Manly... Continue reading

Lovely blog Lisa - it was a spectacular morning out. Congrats to Pauline Forster as well who today did her first double ever, a real trouper
Well done Mary on 1000km, quite an achievement. A lovely day in the ocean today, albeit a little choppy but the water temperature was divine
Yes it has been hot, hot, hot, but didn't we love that cool change come through yesterday. Regardless of the weather or temperature our fearless group of swimmers were at it again this morning. Today we were joined by Ian and Pauline's daughter Kristy for her first B&B swim -... Continue reading
