||Coogee Beach, WA
"..the best family open water swim in the west.."
(Ray Hinde, Prevelly Penguins, Margaret River 2009)
The Jetty to Jetty Swim 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. Organised by Cockburn Masters Swimming Club, it is an integral part of the 2016/17 Livelighter Masters Open Water Swim Series in WA. A new initiative for 2017 is that the event also forms part of Swimming WA's Open Water Series.
This event is unique in offering both a 1,500m and 750m swim in clear sheltered waters between Coogee Beach and Woodman Point. Participants begin with a walk along the beach to the starting points then swim back to the Woodman Point Jetty. Competitors range from 10 through to 85+ years of age.
For the first time in 2017, an extra distance has been introduced - the 250m 'Try-It' Swim, adding to the family focus of this community event.
