Cruise Ship Sydney Australia Skinny Dip Event

The annual Sydney Skinny Swim was held on Sunday March 19, 2016 from 8:00 to 3:00.

The Sydney Skinny is an annual event,  held for the fifth year in 2017.  The event website says, “The swim is not a competition, nor is it timed. Swimmers set off in waves with a flash of exhilaration and the sheer enjoyment of a lovely swim.”

The annual event is held at Cobbler’s Beach in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia, 11 kilometer from the Overseas Cruise Terminal in Sydney.

The Sydney Skinny swim is a short 900 meter swim, around a diamond shaped course in the calm and sheltered waters of Middle Head – Sydney Harbour National Park.

An event you would only find in Australia, cruise passengers could attend the event then sail away on a South Pacific cruise. Royal Caribbean Cruise Line’s Explorer of the Seas was in port that day, departing on an 11 Night South Pacific Cruise  at 18:30 hours.  It was perfect timing to take the morning charity fundraiser dip, then embark on a luxury South Pacific Cruise.
