REGISTRATIONS are now open for Indented Head Yacht Club’s 10th annual Wreck2Reef Open Water Swim early next year.
Held in the stunning, protected waters of Half Moon Bay at Indented Head, the swim on Sunday February 10 will offer competitors some of the smoothest and safest water available in Port Phillip, with 2.5-kilometre, 1.2-kilometre and 500-metre swims and a 300-metre junior dash and dig. Andrew Dix from Indented Head Yacht Club said fundraising efforts from the swim each year were directed towards the purchase and maintenance of yachts, rescue boats, and related safety equipment to enable the youth of the Bellarine to experience the health and social benefits of sailing, where the prohibitive cost of such equipment had previously been a barrier to them.
The swim will follow on from the 2019 Flying Brick Bellarine Sunset Run, which will be held on Saturday February 9.
The family-organised run is an important contributor to Bellarine Community Health Youth Services with awareness and funds raised from the Walk 4 headspace contributing to the headspace program and the youth on the Bellarine. The total raised so far exceeds $15,000.
