Bold and Beautiful is an informal group who meet at the front of Manly Lifesaving Club and swim at 7am, 7 days a week from Manly to Shelly Beach and back, approximately 750 metres each way.
Each swimmer has a personal responsibility to decide whether or not they swim on any particular day. They should only swim if they are completely confident about the conditions of the surf, ocean and weather that they are choosing to swim in as ocean swimming can be a dangerous recreational activity.
All swimmers have a personal responsibility to determine that they have the physical condition to enter into and complete a swim safely without any water safety assistance from other swimmers or the group as a whole. If a swimmer has any existing physical condition or any doubt as to their ability to complete a swim they should have a medical check-up first.
Swimmers under the age of 18 should only swim if accompanied by a parent or a person who has parental responsibility for them.
Swimmers should be aware that there is no water safety nor insurance in the event of sustaining injury etc
If you choose to swim at any other time or on any other route, be it with Bold & Beautiful, or with friends whom you have made through Bold and Beautiful, the same applies. Bold and Beautiful is owned and operated by Bold and Beautiful Swim Squad Pty Ltd.
