Ocean Swim Training

Bondi to Bronte Training Clinic - 2017

The ever popular Bondi to Bronte Ocean Swim clinic returns again in 2017 for its 12th year. With the aim of encouraging everyone to get into ocean swimming shape, the program helps people understand the Bondi to Bronte course conditions, and ultimately to prepare for an enjoyable B2B swim!

The clinic is open to all swimmers who intend on swimming the B2B, the Bondi Bay 800m or those who just want some ocean swimming skill development at the start of the summer ocean swimming season.

Like last year, the clinic will be run by Wally Eggleton.  Wally's experience and knowledge in the ocean will take these sessions and your skills to another level.

The clinic will take place on Sunday 19th November 2017 at 8am. Please arrive at 7.40am to get ready.

Sunday 26th November is the Coogee Island Challenge Ocean Swim and as part of our B2B preparation we recommend you swim at this event to simply blow out any cobwebs before the B2B!

B2B Clinic

Meeting at the Bondi Rescue Lifeguard tower on the promenade at 7:40am for 8am start.

The date for this year:

Sunday 19th November 8am-10am 

The cost is $80/per person. If you can provide proof of your 2017 B2B entry, the clinic will only cost you $50 cash on the day.

What to expect: The clinic will start off at a steady pace in order to help build on the skills you'll need. As the program continues, we will be diving into more challenging drills.

Please note, we will not be swimming laps of Bondi or Bronte Bay in this program. It is designed to develop your ocean swimming skills, so it is advised that you do your own lap training on the side in order to get swim fit.

If you cannot swim 1km in the pool, then you need to do more swim practice before joining this group. We cannot have entry level swimmers joining this group, swimming in the ocean, as it could become a safety hazard.

The training session covers the following skill development topics:

  • Water entry for start of race
  • Negotiating the break
  • Rip identification and use
  • Slip stream swimming techniques
  • Dealing with other swimmers thrashing around you
  • Locating the buoys during your swim
  • Catching waves

Each swimmer will receive a high visibility swim cap which has to be worn at each session.

Each swimmer is required to bring: swimmers, towel, goggles, water, sunscreen and wetsuit (if needed).

Conditions: Please ensure that you make payment at Bondi during the first training session. If due to the weather and/or surf conditions any of the training sessions have to be cancelled, no refunds can be offered.

Please complete the below online registration form to participate.
