Donate to a great cause


A “marathon” 3.5 invitational swim was first run in 1995 by then Captain Erik Mather with support from President Martin McRobert  In 1998 the 2,4,6 km invitational open water swim was established and in 2011 it was decided to dedicate all funds raised by the swim to the Melanoma Institute Australia. In 2012 the swim was renamed  in  the memory of Erik Mather who died from melanoma on 26 September 2011. He was 45 years old.

Donations will go to the Melanoma Institute Australia  Erik Mather PhD Scholarship for melanoma research. All donations raised by the event will directly fund the Erik Mather PhD Scholarship program.

Any life lost to melanoma is one too many.

Last year we  raised $44,000 help us beat that
