Guest Q&A

Saturday Feb 17, 2024

Our guest MC, Michael Klim, will be sitting down with a few special guests to talk sporting careers, what they’re up to now and most importantly, their form heading into the Noosa Summer Swim the next day!

Our special guests in 2023 included former Olympic heroes Susie O’Neill and Andrew Lauterstein, current Surf Ironman star Ali Day and current Olympian Kyle Chalmers.

So round up some swimming buddies, park up for a few hours and enjoy the hospitality!

Adventure Swims & Ready to Race Sessions

Friday Feb 16 & Saturday Feb 17, 2024

Phil Clayton & Co. are a leading open water training provider in Queensland and this Summer we’re lucky to have Phil and his team hosting three sessions on Friday Feb 17 and Saturday Feb 18.   

These sessions are an excellent opportunity to get expert coaching, tips & tricks in the same location as the main event on Sunday. 

Have your Questions Answered before Race Day

Phil will discuss your warm-up, how to read conditions and use them to your advantage, race entry, race tactics, sighting and most importantly, he will be available to answer any questions you might have before race day.

Plenty of Breaks to Rest + Recover

These sessions have included breaks to allow Phil to engage with the group and offer insightful tips to help come race day.

Keen for the Adventure Swim?

Those participating in the Adventure Swims will walk from Noosa Main Beach out to Tee Tree Bay Beach on the cement path (roughly 20min).

The group will swim back to Main Beach (1.5km) with Phil offering warm-up tips, drills, sighting and pack swimming plus a long and easy swim to finish.

If you want to wear thongs you will need to organise someone to bring them back from the beach for you, otherwise, the group happily walked barefoot last year. Water Safety will be provided for this swim.
