The Ocean Swim Classic is nearing a milestone of a $1 million in donations to community groups with over 200 early entries already lodged for the 2019 swim.
‘The usual last-minute rush is expected to push the final numbers up to around 1000 entries,’ a spokesman for the Byron Bay Winter Whales said.
‘These figures mean that we will be able to make similar donations to our usual local charities and organisations as we did over the last seasons of these swims, which will bring our running total to nearly $1 million since our first in 1988,’ he said.
The Byron Bay Property Sales Ocean Swim Classic and the coinciding Byron Bay Mitre 10 Min-swim will be held on Sunday May 5.
