A big THANKS to our sponsors Macquarie, Banana Boat, Speedo, Bennett Boards, Grace Self Storage for their continued support - without you we wouldn't be able to put on our much loved B2B Ocean Swim for the 14th year!
A swim for everyone - so get involved!
The Bronte Bay is a lovely 800m swim, from Bronte Beach to Mackenzies Bay and back.
Last year more than 350 participated in the brand new event. We have created this swim for all those people who don't fancy the 2.2km B2B, are new to ocean swimming, recovering from injury, or those who want to ease into the season.
Calling Nippers from all SLSC's - join the fun of the Bronte Junior Ocean Swim!
More than 60 Nippers across 5 age groups had a wonderful time at the Junior Ocean swim last year. Thanks to our sponsors Banana Boat, Speedo & Bennett Boards there are some great lucky draw prizes just for participating, not to mention the age group place prizes.
The Nippers loved getting involved and it was great to see them enjoy the fun and comradery of the Junior Ocean Swim.

The Kids' Cancer Project is once again the proud charity partner of the Bondi to Bronte Ocean Swim. Over the past three years Bondi to Bronte participants have raised over $100,000 for vital childhood cancer research.
Swim for a CURE!
With one of the highest incidences of childhood cancer in the world, more Australian children are lost to cancer than any other disease (on average, three children are lost every week). Therapies and treatments can be damaging to young bodies and cause life-long side effects including infertility, secondary cancers, organ toxicity and hormone deficiencies. The only way to improve outcomes for children with cancer is through advances in medical research.
The Kids' Cancer Project's mission is to find a cure for childhood cancer by funding Australia's best medical research. Please join The Kids' Cancer Project and the Bronte Surf Life saving Club in the fight against childhood cancer by fundraising this year.
Our wonderful friends from Speedo are donating a piece of swimming memorabilia to the highest individual fundraiser and don't forget EVERY swimmer who raises $250 or more will get their swim entry fee refunded!
*Swimmers who raise $250 or more for The Kids' Cancer Project will have their entry fee refunded by Bronte SLSC.
In 2013 we were so thrilled that the Bondi to Bronte was again one of the largest 2km+ swims in Australia. The enthusiasm and love of the swim is something Bronte SLSC is incredibly proud of!
So who's joining us on Sunday 7th December for the 14th Bondi to Bronte Ocean Swim?
