Sth Curl Curl SLSC – Ocean Swim
Where: South Curl Curl Beach to Freshwater Beach
The Harbord Community Bank sponsored  South Curly SLSC Ocean Swim has been run and won for 2010.  This destination swim from South Curly to Freshwater beach continues to grow in size and popularity and really does showcase the beauty of living in this part of the Northern Beaches. Monies raised from this swim, and from our sponsors contributions go a long way towards financing the purchase of lifesaving equipment needed to put patrols on our challenging piece of sand. First male across the line was Darrin Jones with female contender Luane Rowe in hot pursuit.
