Tim Gates Classic



While the club is strongly committed to providing a COVID safe environment to all its members this summer, we are also committed to providing a summer program of events that continues to engage, entertain and promote physical well-being.

With the Gates Classic a regular fixture in our summer calendar, Fairhaven SLSC is committed to continue the tradition in 2021, albeit under modified COVID safe conditions.

This year the Gates Classic will be a virtual event.

However, it will still challenge our summer fitness and bring us together virtually, in celebration of the Tim Gates Foundation and the passionate support for the lives of young people within the surf lifesaving environment.

We are grateful to have the support of our long time Principal Sponsor – Great Ocean Properties. This year we are pleased to welcome Border Express who are supporting us through distribution of our t-shirt packs.

So, while we will not all be gathering on our amazing Fairhaven beach course, we know you will enjoy the challenge. So, get creative, use your imagination and enjoy your own Gates Classic course this year, in your hometown (or wherever you may be).

As always, the event is open to your whole family, friends and neighbours – but this year we can include not only Fairhaven locals, but anyone wherever you are, interstate and overseas.

During your training for the event, during or after you participate, you’ll be able to share your Gates Classic experience by linking to our event site. Share your story, your photos or your event time and help each other to stay healthy over summer.

Entries will open soon.
