The Sinkers

The Sinkers

Presented by Lara Fischel Chisholm from the Wet Hot Beauties and captained by Ruby Donohoe.

Join Ruby Donohoe Club Captain and Lara Fischel Chisholm (Wet Hot Beauties, NZ) as they lead The Sinkers; the Sunshine Coast’s most underwhelming synchronised swimming club.

This fun, 20 minute pop-up show welcomes everyone, and aims to connect the coast through humour and refreshing entertainment.

The Sinkers are a community of bona fide fun chasers. Grandparents; photographers; chippies; coastal newcomers; old school locals; mothers; dancers; marketing professionals; and creatives.

The Sinkers are in sync. Not just in the water, but in life too. You see, when like-minded people connect, you’ll always stay afloat.

Enjoy 2 pop-up shows daily on Saturday 27 and Sunday 28 August – 10am at Kings Beach Pool and 3pm at Cotton Tree (opposite the Wonderland Speilgletent).
