||Coogee Beach, WA
WA's Premier Community Swim
"..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 2018/19 WOW Swim Series in WA and a key focus of this event is on 'encouraging participation'.
This event is unique in offering both a 250m Try-It, 750m Splash and a 1500m Classic Swim, all taking place 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 90+ years of age.
The 250m 'Try-It' Swim adds to the family focus of this community event and encourages younger children (of 8 years +) and those new to ocean swimming to 'try-it'.
