Ocean Swims Calendar › Great Victorian Swim Series

The Great Victorian Swim Series is an ocean swim series in Victoria that consists of 11 ocean swim events throughout the state. For a small annual fee participants can be a part of the series and be up for prizes and placings on the points table.

The Great Victorian Swim Series helps raise funds for Victorian Life Saving Clubs, ensuring volunteer lifesavers can continue to keep beaches safe – the very place ocean swimmers take advantage of all summer.

All events are timed, and results are tallied for the entire series. You can also create your own club with friends or swim club members, that will allow you to compete for the Great Victorian Swim Series SV MSV Club Champion award. Members of a Swimming Victoria or Maters Club have their points go towards their club score, and all Great Victorian Swim Series swimmers are eligible for individual awards.

Great Victorian Swim Series Categories:

  • Short course (2k or less)
  • Short course Non-Wetsuit (2k or less)
  • Long course (over 2.5k)
  • Long course Non-Wetsuit (over 2.5k)
  • Supporter/cheer squad

At the end of each season a presentation Party is held at the Royal Brighton Yacht Club for all swimmers and their friends, and those present (who have participated) will be up for the major series prize of a swim trip to Europe.
