Captain Cook Ocean Classic

Come join us for the inaugural Captain Cook Ocean Classic to be held in the calm clear waters of Botany Bay. Take the plunge over a 5km / 2.5km / 1 km & 500 m (for the big and little kids) course in the waters off Inscription Point where our event namesake waded ashore and landed 1770.

This year’s 5km course will be sanctioned by Swimming NSW and will replace the canceled 2019 NSW 5km Open Water Championships that were called off on 20 Dec at Penrith Regatta Centre due to extreme heat and very unsafe poor air quality.

You can register for the event HERE
