A wet and wild weekend in The Palms

Over a long weekend we hiked into the Royal National Park with nine keen ocean swimmers for our most recent Wet & wild weekend.

It was a beautifully balanced 3-days of wild swims, ocean swimming and training.

In between all the swimming, we chilled out in the peaceful surrounds of Burning Palms, soaking up the sound of the surf by day, and the brightness of the stars by night.

Here’s a look at what we got up to (Facebook gallery). Wish you were there? Join us next season!
