TAKE THE PLUNGE THIS MAY

Noosa's favourite ocean swim event that showcase's one of Noosa's most famous tourist spots - Noosa Main Beach will be held on Sunday 18 May 2008 and is expected to attract a full field.

This year event adds to the full Mayfiesta program and is sure to offer the Sunshine Coast community every reason to be in the swim this May.

Now in its fifth year, the Noosa Blue Water Swim continues a steady growth pattern that wins over swimming enthusiasts.

Local residents 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 the 500m Splash and Nipper Challenge along Noosa Main Beach is sure to be the answer.

Due to National Parks and Wildlife restrictions, entries into the 2km event will be strictly limited to comply with these rules.

Importantly, the day is designed for fun and participation so there will be lots of random draw prizes given away so everyone has a chance to win.

This year USM EVENTS have chosen to support the Down Syndrome 'Down Under' Swimming Organisation as this year's official event charity. In November this year 20 Australian hopefuls will head to Portugal to contest the 4th Down Syndrome World Swimming Championships.

To ensure all visitors enjoy their day Noosa Blue Resort is offering an excellent Entry & Accommodation Package for May only. The deal includes, entry, 2 (from $287 pp twin share) or 3 (from $427 pp twin share) night stay in a Deluxe Suite and Hot Buffet Breakfast daily.
