Mollymook Swimmers travel south for the 6th Broulee Bay to Breakers Ocean Swim
Roving reporter Sue wrote: “Mollymook was well represented with eleven swimmers making the trip down to beautiful Broulee. Conditions were lovely; a nice swell, no wind, water temp at 23 degrees. The beach exit was a little rougher than some would have liked, but we all exited in one piece! Some even used it to their advantage by catching the waves into shore before a brief dash to the finish line”.
