The Chopper Swim Challenge is a 20km fundraising "non event" ocean swim from Matiatia Beach on Waiheke Island to Mechanics Bay in Auckland on Thursday, 31 March 2016.

The event is a dedicated fundraiser for the Westpac Rescue Helicopter and all participants commit to raising donations for this vital service. This is a difficult swim and should be attempted by experienced and confident swimmers only. As a solo swimmer (20km) you should have completed at least a 10km open water swim in the last 12 months before entering this event.

It is free to enter and run solely by volunteers. For that, each swimmer or team is asked raise a minimum of $500 per individual or $1000 per team.
