Mark Sunday the 22nd of February 2015 down in your diary for the Big Bay Festival held at Port Phillip Bay (Commonwealth Reserve) in Williamstown while the swim is taking place. There will be rides, local entertainment, market stalls, amusements and face painting all centred around welcoming the competitors in the 27th Big Bay Swim back to land after crossing the biggest bay in the southern hemisphere! The festival will be filled with lots of fun things to do for all ages and the swim will be a 3.2km swim from Port Melbourne to Williamstown, starting at 10am.


Submit your Swimmer Registration Form before the 8th of February to get a big discount on your entry fee and to go into the EARLY BIRD prize draw. Spaces are limited so REGISTER HERE.

Every $65 registration gets a tee and a cap and there's lots of new prize divisions and spot prizes from the corporate sponsors that makes it even more exciting. The swim will be supervised by the Williamstown Lifesaving Club members using Surfboat IRB's & Lifesavers on boards. Proceeds from this event will go to the Rotary Club of Point Gellibrand so they can continue their important charity work with causes such as the Challenge Cancer Support Network Supporting Kids with Cancer and the 20th Man Fund.


Check out the website for more details about this event. If you'd like to be one of the sponsors CLICK HERE. 'Like' their Facebook page and check out some amazing pics from last years swim. You can still have fun at the festival even if you're not a swimmer or there to support a particular swimmer, so come on down!
