Icebergs 90th Year

Bondi Icebergs swimming club dates back to 1929 and owes its origin to the desire of a band of local lifesavers trying to maintain their fitness during the Winter months.

They formed the Bondi Icebergs Winter Swimming Club, drew up a constitution and elected office bearers. Included in the constitution was a rule that to maintain membership it was mandatory that swimmers compete on three Sundays out of four for a period of five years. This rule, known as the “15B rule” still exists and has been the source of much commentary over the years.

The Bondi Icebergs is the only licensed Winter Swimming Club in the world.

The merchandise with these logos is a limited release and will only be available this year.
