Port Melbourne to Williamstown

Swim Information


The 2019 Big Bay Swim is on the Sunday 24th of February at 9:00am.

Event Overview:

This is our 30th Anniversary swim and we are encouraging even more swimmers to tackle the challenge of swimming across the bay.  Given our unfortunate cancellation last year due to dangerous conditions we have a second course in more sheltered waters in the event we need to shift.  This will virtually guarantee that all future swims will proceed regardless of trying water conditions.

The swim will be supervised by members from the Williamstown Lifesaving Club, using Surfboat IRB’s & Lifesavers on boards.

Proceeds from this event assist the Rotary Club of Point Gellibrand, Williamstown to continue their important charity work with causes such as the Challenge Cancer Support Network – Supporting Kids with Cancer and the 20th Man Fund.

What are you waiting for?  Get registered as there are limited numbers…don’t miss out on this great opportunity to be part of the only open water swim across Port Philip Bay.
