Incredibly Joyous Day

"... Life expands or contracts in direct proportion to your courage. In modern life we monitor our health, our finances and our relationships. Yet it should be equally important to monitor our sense of adventure. If doing a ticketed, no spectator, skinny dip at a secluded national park, where everyone gets a sarong as they finish their swim, is outside your sense of adventure, it does tend to raise the all-important question what on earth is in it?" Nigel Marsh

Spectacular Setting Join us in 2017!! Date to be Announced Shortly!

Cobblers Beach at Middle Head, is the perfect setting for a short, non-competitive, 300m or 900m swim on a beautiful Sunday morning.

The waterway is protected from the ocean swell and is the perfect location for new swimmers or those who are new to swimming in open water. The swim is un-timed, therefore NOT a race... so dive in and enjoy the serenity.

An Annual Event

For some the swim was a challenge, for others it was leaving the swim suits on the beach... but for those who joined us over the last four years, the smiles and the fun will stay with them. Many had never been to Middle Head National Park, nor Cobblers Beach - we are certain many will return to enjoy the beautiful location again and again.

Over 1,000 people joined us on Sunday 1st March 2015 for the 3rd annual Sydney Skinny. We were blessed with a sparkling summer day and a fabulous crowd who were eager and excited to get down to Cobblers Beach and enjoy the fun. The conditions in the water were calm and many swimmers have said The Sydney Skinny was their first ever ocean swim and that they were so thrilled to have completed the course! We hope to see everyone again in 2016 to share in the fun, exhilaration and accomplishment of a wonderful swim.

What is the Sydney Skinny?

Have you ever felt like life is a little dull? Or that you'd like to celebrate overcoming one of life's challenges? Or say "enough" to the pressures or negativity in your world? Over past two years more than 1,000 people have used The Sydney Skinny to do one or more of these things...

So, what's so special about this ocean swim? It is NOT a race and it's only 900m (or you can do the 300m nudie Novice instead), it's at a protected & calm beach in one of Sydney's hidden gem locations.

What do you feel post swim? Elation, self-belief, joy, a sense of belonging and appreciation for all that we have in this life. The Sydney Skinny is one swim where each participant takes away their own unique experience.... why? Because it's for you, to make it about you, and what you hope to continue in life.

“It will be great fun and very exhilarating to strip off and dive into the waves. Thank goodness it's going to be Summer!”

“I’m very proud to and excited to be joining in this unique event - it is something I will be able to tell my grandchildren...”

“Wonderful idea. Love it.”
