2017 WHARF TO WAVES WEEKEND WILL BE HELD ON THE 14 & 15 JANUARY.
Lock in the dates - Saturday 14 and Sunday 15 January for the 2017 Tathra Wharf to Waves weekend. A big thank you to Bega Cheese who continue to be our major sponsor of this great community event.
Each year since 2002 over 400 people jump into the crystal blue water of Tathra from the historic Tathra Wharf and swim the 600m or 1200m course off the Tathra Wharf to Waves Ocean Swim. The event continues to grow and is a premier event on the Far South Coast calendar every January.
The swim claims centre stage of a weekend of fun and fitness in Tathra, which includes a Beach Fun Run and a 30k Bega to the Beach Mountain Bike Ride on the Saturday, followed by a day of swim events on the Sunday.
Amusements R Us will again be providing a carnival atmosphere in Tathra over the weekend. They are a great supporter of the event.
There is something for everyone over the weekend. And you can win fantastic prizes across all three events.
The weekend culminates with music and refreshments on the deck of the Tathra Surf Club, where you can sit back, reflect on the weekend, while taking in the stunning vista of Tathra Beach.
We welcome all visitors to our area to come and join in. By taking part on the weekend you are helping our vibrant community as all funds raised go to support our local services - the Tathra Surf Life Saving Club, the Tathra Pre-School, the Tathra Primary School and the Tathra Rural Fire Service.
For just $100 you could win the naming rights to the 1200m Splash for Cash Ocean Swim. You or your business could receive over $10,000 worth of promotional opportunities - TV, radio and print advertising, promotions, sponsor opportunities, media - all while supporting a fundraising event which benefits the whole community. The DRAW will take place at the Tathra Surf Club on the evening of Friday 25 November. You need to be in it to win it!
Thank you again to Bega Cheese for continuing to be the events major sponsor in 2017 and to John Maher from www.scnswbiz, who manages the website. We look forward to the support once again of our many local business sponsors, supporters and volunteers. We could not run the event without you.
