Published: January 05, 2023

Greg recently was the first 2023 swimmer to complete the 34km Marathon Derwent River Big Swim in a fantastic time of 8hours and 13minutes. 

Starting in 16 celsius water, and piloted by Sea Rescue Tasmania and their amazing crew. 

What a massive effort! Well done to our Surf Sports leader, who when congratulated said it still comes down to the team.

It takes a lot of money to run a surf lifesaving club; from the equipment needed on the beach (vehicles, boards, IRBs, first aid kits, defibrillators etc) to administration and training to facilitate patrolling.

So if you can't join us, support us through one of the following options.
