No Lives Lost at Bondi Beach

Today marks 85 years since Black Sunday on Bondi Beach.
Sunday 6 February 1938 saw the largest mass rescue in 245 of 250 people saved and, unfortunately, five died when they were swept off a sand bank.
It was just after 3pm and the Club’s Sunday Surf Race was about to be run. That proved incredibly fortunate with those waiting on the sand for the race leaping into action to bring people back to shore. The incident also happened as the Club’s patrols were swapping over, so there were over 60 Bondi Surf Club members on the beach!
Today we remember the five people who lost their lives on Black Sunday and honour those who saved so many other lives.
