Monday 24 April 2006 It's on again - so get into the swim of things
Now in it's third year the Noosa Blue Water Swim is on again as each year the event continues to win over swimming enthusiasts looking for a great destination event heading into the more temperate season and what better place to escape too than Noosa.
This year we have moved the event back one week to align with the fabulous Noosa Mayfiesta. The Noosa Blue Water Swim will be held on Sunday 21st May. In Noosa there's always something worth celebrating but especially during Noosa Mayfiesta there's a new event, experience and indulgence to savour - another 31 good reasons to visit Noosa in May.
The now famous annual event takes advantage of Noosa's fabulous climate, sublime lifestyle and relaxed atmosphere.
The Noosa Blue Water Swim is the brain child of Noosa Blue Resort Owner, Phillip Harding and Ray White boss, Brian White. Both mates and keen Noosa swimmers, they have securely made this event part of the annual, South East Queensland ocean based events and timed the event to take advantage of Noosa's magnificent winter weather.
You can be part of the Noosa Blue Water Swim by competing in either the 2km Noosa Blue Water Swim from Tea Tree Bay around the headland to Noosa Main Beach or the 1km Ray White Ocean Swim from Little Cove to Main Beach. If you think those distances are a bit out of your league then we have the new Viridian 500m Splash and Nipper Challenge along Noosa Main Beach. Noosa's subtropical temperatures make it an ideal place for ocean swimming all year round.
The event offers individual and club team opportunities - McDonalds are offering $500 for the club with the most entries and a further $500 from Bankwest for the Surf Club with the most nippers, there's also a Hayden Surf craft Elite Nipper Board to be won - that's a total of $10,000 in cash and prizes right there and doesn't include the random draw prizes to be won at presentations.
If you compete in either the 2km or 1km swims stick around for presentations because you are eligible to win yourself a trip to either the Vanuatu Ocean Swim on June 16 and Fiji Ocean Swim (October 14). The packages include airfare for one, four night's accommodation, transfers and event entry fee.
Importantly, the day is designed for fun and participation so there will be heaps of random draw prizes given away so everyone has a chance to win.
To ensure all visitors enjoy their day Noosa Blue Resort as a major sponsor of the event is offering excellent accommodation packages. You can visit their website at www.noosablue.com.au or to book direct phone the toll free number 1800 INDLUGE (1800 46 38 54).
