Proud to Play NZ in association with Team Auckland & The Bean Rock Swim 2016 is pleased to present the Proud to Play NZ 2016 Ocean Swim.
Now in its 6th year, the Bean Rock Swim is your chance to swim all the way out to, around the back of and then return from the largest navigational marker in the Waitemata Harbour - the Bean Rock Lighthouse.
We have two distances for you to choose from so if you are motivated by the event but not strong enough for the full distance yet, we offer a 1.6k course that will see you swimming halfway to the lighthouse, around a large turnaround buoy and then back to the beach.
