The Bay of Islands Classic in Paihia on Saturday, 16 December 2017 is a great summer ocean swim with a super long distance for the experienced swimmer and shorter races for beginners.

For the first time in the event’s 9 year history, the 3.3km "I'm Going Long" course will be in reverse (starting at Paihia Beach, finishing in Russell) and as a Series first, a twilight swim!

Russell will play host to the event, with the main event site there and the "Step it Up" 1km, "Give it a Go" 500m and "Banana Boat OceanKids" 200m event distances taking place off Russell Beach throughout the afternoon, prior to the start of the 3.3km event.
