Swimming NSW Summer Swim Leader Board
In 2019 The Sydney Morning Herald Cole Classic has teamed up with six other Sydney based ocean swims to create the Swimming NSW Summer Swim Leader Board in the summer of 2018/2019.
Earn points and be part of the leader board by competing in one or all of the seven included races. The more events you enter, the more points you get! There is no additional fee to participate in the series, all you need to do is register in the Cole Classic 5km ocean swim to participate in the Summer Swim Leader Board.
