The GMHBA Lorne Pier to Pub swim attracts swimmers from all ages and from all levels including recreational and professional. You will need to complete the swim in reasonable time, less than 40 minutes. Swimmers who take too long may be removed from the water for their own safety.
A wet-suit is not essential, however many participants choose to wear one for warmth and comfort. We strongly recommend that you wear a wet-suit. Wet-suits will be available for hire on the day please contact our partner 2XU prior to the event to organise wetsuit hire.
Everyone should be a regular swimmer and we encourage regular medical check-ups. If you have not been swimming for a while or have never swum in an open water event or in the ocean you should definitely have a medical check up.
