Sorrento SLSC – ‘Have a Go’ & Mile Swim – Saturday 16 January

SO Club logoThe Sorrento Surf Life Saving Club invites the North Coast Members to their ‘Have a Go’ morning and timed Mile Swim this Saturday at the Surf club. These events provide a great option for those planning to do the Sunsmart Triathlon Series race 2 at Rockingham the Sunday.
The Have a Go is scheduled from 8am and there is the opportunity to have a go with both the Row Boats and paddle boards until 11am, something as triathletes we wouldn’t normally get access to. Then from 9am there is a timed mile swim with registration at 8:45, both events are complimentary to our club members.

So come down, have a go, there is plenty of time even if you would like to ride first thing in the morning.

All information is available in the calendar entry.
