The current edition of this event is on 17 February 2018.
The Bean Rock Swim on Saturday, 11 February 2017 is a 3.2 km ocean swim from Mission Bay Beach to the Bean Rock Lighthouse and back again.
For those who are not yet up to the full Lighthouse Swim challenge, there is an option to swim a half course of 1.6 km instead. This course runs out to a buoy 800m offshore and back again. Then hopefully once that's in the bag you can look to knocking off the full course in the future!
