||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 annual Jetty to Jetty swim is a special community event which participants can enjoy by taking part in this iconic swim, a beautiful walk along Coogee Beach, spectating or simply enjoying each other's company after the swim at the community breakfast on the reserve.
Organised by Cockburn Masters Swimming Club, the key focus of this event is on 'encouraging participation'.
In addition to the traditional Jetty to Jetty Swim (1500m Classic) and the half distance 750m Splash, the 250m Community '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'.
All 3 swimming race distances take 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.
Entries in each of the races are expected to be very popular and places are strictly limited as follows:
- 250m Community Try Swim - 250 swimmers
- 750m Splash - 250 swimmers
- 1500m Classic - 1,000 swimmers
A Priority booking period (1 week only) is available from Wednesday 9th November. All remaining places are available to the General Public from Wednesday 16th November, beginning with an Early Bird booking period (2 weeks only).
Priority Entries (2 types this year): eligible priority entrants are Cockburn residents and Option 2 participants from last year's cancelled event (those who did not take a cash refund).
