Byron Bay Property Sales Ocean Swim Classic & Byron Bay Mitre 10 Mini Swim

We wish to bring to your attention the facility where you can check if your entry has been successful. This is a quick check for you and a back-up should the "application-successful" email not be received immediately following the completion of the entry process. This email is generated at the same time your entry and payment are accepted and has your entry details, transaction numbers etc included. The main reason some folks do not receive this email is if they make an error during the entry process and put in the wrong email. The List of Successful Entrants is upgraded at the same time as the email is generated so if your name is on that list, the email has gone to a different address that you expected it to. You can access this facility via the paragraph below.

The efforts of our sponsors and support businesses has been invaluable in this event and we thank them for their continued support over the years.
