You are invited to participate in the third year running of the BYS ‘Adventure Team Challenge’ – the ultimate test of endurance, skills and bragging rights. All proceeds will go towards headspace Frankston in support of our youth on the Mornington Peninsula – specifically to assist in youth unemployment.

The event will take place at 10.30am on Sunday 18 February at Blairgowrie Yacht Squadron and will be followed by lunch on the deck at the club.

The event comprises five (5) legs with teams of four (4). Each team member does one individual leg, with the team then completing the fifth leg. The legs are as follows:

  • Leg 1:  1.2 km swim
  • Leg 2:   3 km ski paddle
  • Leg 3:   17.2 km bike
  • Leg 4:   2.4 km beach run
  • Leg 5:   500 m team swim


  • Teams of four
  • All team members do two legs, one individual leg and the team swim leg
  • A team’s finishing time is taken off the last swimmer in Leg 5, the Team Swim

Handicaps will be applied this year with prizes for both the handicap and overall winners.

We have had BYS represented by a couple of teams each year and we would welcome more teams competing as this event grows. If you can’t put together a full team, but would like to be part of a team, then please forward your details to Libby Nelson at [email protected], mentioning your preferred event leg, and we’ll endeavour to put you into a team.

If you have any queries, please call the event organiser Paul Devereux on 0412 100 346.
