Sorrento Bay Swim

Details: Saturday 10 February 2018, Sorrento Beach

About: Sorrento and its beaches are one of the major tourist destinations in Victoria. The 2018 event will be the 15th year of the Bay Swim, and will again be offering the popular 4km swim with the 2km and 600m swim making up the program on the day.

Pier to Perignon

Details: Sunday 11 February 2018, Sorrento Beach to Portsea

About: An iconic swim in the Victorian open water swimming calendar: it started in 1989 when the two founders swam 4.5km from Sorrento to Portsea, with the wager being a bottle of Dom Pérignon for the winner. Nearly thirty years later, around 800 swimmers compete each year and a bottle of Pérignon is still up for grabs. It's great to make a weekend of it on the Mornington Peninsula with the Sorrento Bay Swim the day before.

We'd love to meet you there, so see you on the beach!
