The record-smashing team at Cottesloe have done it again, beating their own 2012 total with an astounding 2093 people in the water on Giant Havaianas to set a new World Record and take out the 2013 Australia Day Thong Challenge!
Yet again, the Aussie spirit was in fine form with 5,664 people taking to the water at beaches across the nation and over $56,000 raised to support the SLSC Nippers.
We also saw hundreds of Backyard Events taking place in pools, rivers, yards and dams across the country - we can’t wait to hear more about these!
A special mention must go to our mates in QLD who experienced dangerous cyclonic conditions that lead to event cancellation. Our fingers are crossed for better weather and one hell of a comeback next year!

Congratulations to consecutive champions and World Record Holders – Cottesloe!
See you in 2014! We’re counting down the days already!
