"..the best family open water swim in the west.."
(Ray Hinde, Prevelly Penguins, Margaret River 2009)
Jointly organised by Cockburn Masters Swimming Club Inc. and Rotary Club of Cockburn Inc., the Jetty to Jetty is a special community event which provides a great opportunity for participants to take part by swimming or walking or just supporting and enjoying the breakfast. Part of the HBF Masters Open Water Swim Series in WA, the event is unique in offering both a 1,500m and 750m swim in clear sheltered waters between Coogee Beach and Woodman Point. Participants start with a walk along the beach to the starting points then swim back to the Woodman Point Jetty. Competitors range from 8 through to 85 years of age.
