||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, the key focus of this event is on 'encouraging participation'.
This year's event will include a 250m Try It Swim and a 1500m Classic Swim, both 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.
In addition to the traditional Jetty to Jetty Swim (1500m Classic), 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'.
Entries in both race distances are strictly limited:
1500m Classic - maximum 500 swimmers
250m Try It - maximum 100 swimmers
An allocation of up to 150 places in the 1500m Classic and 30 places in the 250m Try It Swim are available for Cockburn residents only during the priority Early Bird only period (1 week only).
All remaining entries are available to the General Public from 9th November 2020 until sold out.
