UPDATE: 19 March 2020
All club training has been cancelled for the time being in the best interest of the health and safety of all participants and volunteer coordinators.
The club will continue to monitor the situation and provide updates when the programs can resume in due course. We hope to be able to offer dry season training at Casuarina Beach but will act in accordance with government regulations and advice.

It is with a heavy heart that the Darwin Surf Life Saving Club has made the difficult but necessary decision to cancel the 2020 event in light of the COVID-19 pandemic for the health and safety of all involved.
The club has a number of terrific sponsors who contribute to the club each year through their support of this event and we look forward to continuing these relationships in 2021 for the next Swim Classic. The committee also wishes to thank the Gallagher family for all their tireless work in bringing this event together each year.
The club would also like to thank all the participants who support the event and the club each year. We look forward to hosting you again in 2021 for our iconic swim.
