IMPORTANT UPDATE - SWIM CONTINGENCY
During the past week the LOC has been closely monitoring the surf conditions on the Sunshine Coast which are being influenced by the cyclone activity off the east coast ofAustralia.
In addition to advice from the Australian Bureau of Meteorology, local professional lifeguards and the Mooloolaba Surf Life Saving Club and in conjunction with the ITU a decision has been made to revise the swim course location. Current forecasts are indicating that the surf on Mooloolaba Beach on Saturday afternoon will be approx. 2m high, combined with low tide this will create dangerous rip conditions for athletes and subsequently the swim leg has been moved to the Mooloolah River.
Water temperature: Average 26 C
Number of laps: 1 lap
