Wreck 2 Reef swim gearing up for bumper event

The 9th annual Wreck 2 Reef is on in February.

Open water swim lovers, families, friends, locals and visitors alike will be indulged in one of the most spectacular bay races in the region with details of the 9th annual Wreck 2 Reef Open Water Swim Classic announced.
In the line-up is an exciting new 2.5km Open Swim.
The much anticipated event will be held on Sunday 11 February.
Initiated in 2010, the Wreck 2 Reef is held in the stunning, protected waters of Half Moon Bay at Indented Head which offers some of the smoothest and safest water available to competitors in Port Phillip Bay. With incredible views across the bay to Melbourne, the channel, You Yangs and further afield – and local food and beverages to enjoy on the day – supporters will be spoilt as well.
In addition to the classic 1.2km swim, last year saw the introduction of a short novice 500 metre swim. There is also a 300 metre swim for juniors which includes a fun beach dig for cash and prizes.
The Wreck2Reef Open Water Swim Classic is hosted and co-ordinated each year by Indented Head Yacht Club.
John Walter of the Indented Head Yacht Club said the club was committed to bringing the joy and healthy activity of sailing to youth, especially where there may be social economic considerations which hinder affordability of purchasing a yacht and associated safety equipment to sail.
