Get your 2013/2014 sea-swim calendar off to a flying start ... participate in arguably the most scenic of all Auckland's ocean swims - a 2.5km swim that hugs the coast so you are never far from shore, with the backdrop of picturesque Devonport and the towering North Head.

So join like minded swimmers along with family and friends at the 2013 Round North Head Classic, organised by the Devonport Swim Club.

This classic ocean swim revives the popular community ocean swim instigated and run for a number of years by the Williamson brothers of Devonport.

This year’s course again runs from Windsor Reserve in the Devonport village, around North Head to Cheltenham Beach (Balmain Reserve), a distance of approximately 2.5km.

Surf Life Saving New Zealand will provide all the safety on-water, with St John on hand for first aid. Fresh pastries, bacon butties, and refreshments will be supplied (to competitors and volunteers) on the finish line. Great Spot Prize draw afterwards makes for a fun event all round.

We encourage friends and family to walk the route along King Edward Parade and around North Head. Torpedo Bay Wharf also offers a great vantage point to observe swimmers' progress.
