Will 2023 be another perfect swimming day for the Tugatoy Dementia Swim?

Thursday 20th Apr
The Ocean has been moody of late - but the last two years we have had perfect conditions for the Tugatoy swim. Its a feel good community day - it feels good to do something together for a worthy cause - Finding a cure for dementia and helping those inflicted along the way.
Thanks for your support.
