Victorian Open Water Swim Calendar

Welcome to the 2015-16 Casey Seals Open Water Swimming Calendar. This is the most comprehensive source of information for open water swimming events in Victoria. Most of the events are at beaches around Port Phillip Bay, Westernport Bay and the Victorian ocean beaches from November through to mid-March.

The calendar was compiled from various sources, including the Cousins Tours & Travel and Ocean Swims open water swimming calendars, the websites of the organisations running the swims and from information supplied by the organisers themselves.

Most of the events are finalised now and most of the details have been published. However, changes may occur at any time and events may be rescheduled due to bad weather, so keep checking back regularly for updates.

For more information about the calendar, Open Water Swim training squads, groups and events or any of the Victorian swims, email Greg Chaplin at ows@caseyseals.com.au (no unsolicited commercial emails please).
