I was standing in the water for this shot and had to be careful not to get bowled over in the rush !!

The Balmoral Swim is one of the few open water races to be held within the beauty of Sydney Harbour, making it a safe event for all comers.
The course is short and the start and finish areas are together, ensuring a large crowd of swimmers and spectators together in the main beach area.
The event is one of a kind in Sydney, combining the 1K swim, family and corporate relays and a juniors event. Trophies are awarded to swimmers who raise money for the Childrens Cancer institute Australia.
