Get your 2015/2016 sea-swim calendar off to a flying start ... participate in arguably the most scenic of all Auckland's ocean swims - a great route that uniquely hugs the coast so you are never far from shore, with the backdrop of picturesque Devonport and the towering North Head headland.

Birthday Suit category back for 2.5km swimmers

After a successful debut in 2014, we have again added the Birthday Suit category for those seeking aquatic tinglings in the Waitemata Harbour (a special boat supplied for getting your swim kit off and back on again demurely at the conclusion of the swim). This is for the 2.5km swim only and is restricted to those 18 years or older.

New Senior Short Course Category

We have also added the 1.2km Senior Short Course category, to the 2014 Junior Short Course, from Torpedo Bay Beach to Balmain Reserve for those who want a short but scenic option.

So join like-minded swimmers along with family and friends at the 2015 Round North Head Classic, organised by the Devonport Swim Club.

This year’s Standard Course for Juniors & Seniors & Birthday Suiters is from Windsor Reserve in the Devonport village, around North Head to Cheltenham Beach (Balmain Reserve), a distance of approximately 2.5km.

This year’s Short Course for Seniors and Juniors is from Torpedo Bay Beach in Devonport, around North Head to Cheltenham Beach (Balmain Reserve), a distance of approximately 1.2km.

Surf Life Saving New Zealand will provide all the safety on-water, with St John on hand for first aid. Fresh pastries, bacon butties, and refreshments will be supplied (to competitors and volunteers) on the finish line. Great Spot Prize draw afterwards makes for a fun event all round.

We encourage friends and family to walk the route along King Edward Parade and around North Head. Torpedo Bay Wharf also offers a great vantage point to observe swimmers' progress.
