The Danger Ocean Swim Series at Pt Danger (Torquay Front Beach) is in its 21st year on Saturday, 5 January 2019 and is one of the biggest and most popular open water swims in Victoria.
The event is run by the Jan Juc Surf Lifesaving Club at the calm, protected and picturesque location that the locals fondly refer to as "Cosy Corner". This idyllic setting is protected by Point Danger.
There are three race distances incorporated into the Danger Ocean Swim Series - 500m, 1km and 2.5km - attracting around 2000 competitors. It provides a great day for spectators by virtue of the triangular course with the start and finish being almost in the same place.
The Danger Ocean Swim is held the day after the Bells Bash Cliff Run.
