The annual “Coogee Jetty to Jetty” swim is organised by Cockburn Masters Swimming Club through a Sub-Committee which diligently plans and delivers the event on behalf of the club.
This year’s event is the 20th Anniversary Jetty to Jetty Swim and will take place on Sunday 13th March 2016.

Perhaps most famous for being one of those rare and special community events which caters for all, it includes a beach walk, the swim itself, a post-swim breakfast and a festival family atmosphere for all to enjoy, with swimmers ranging from 10 to right through to 85 years or more.

Offering two swim distances (750 metres and 1,500 metres) in pristine waters at Coogee Beach, the swim’s popularity and entry numbers both continue to grow from year to year.

Our club’s vision is “to provide the most enjoyable family-oriented open water swim in WA” so come along and see if you think we have succeeded yet!

Of course, a big thank you to our major sponsors for allowing us to make this event happen.

Course Map


All swimmers MUST attend the Compulsory Race Briefing which takes place around the Woodman Point Jetty at 8.00am.


After the briefing, swimmers walk from the Woodman Point Jetty along the beach to their start line – either at the Coogee Beach Jetty (1,500m) or the designated marker buoy half way along the beach (750m).


Wave starts of approximately 100-150 swimmers will be used at each start line (based on entry times nominated). The starting procedure is simple and will be explained fully at briefing.


Water safety is kindly provided by Coogee Beach Surf Life Saving Club and other land support/first aid is provided by St John Ambulance.


A simplified set of Race Rules has been developed in conjunction with MSWA. View the MSWA OWS Series Local Rules here.

Swimwear rules are easy – basically, anything goes – with the exception of wetsuits (which ARE allowed with swimmers wearing wetsuits placed into a separate WETSUIT category for prizes).


All swimmers swim in the direction of Woodman Point Jetty and finish the race by swimming under an in-water finishing boom so a time can be recorded.

Swimmers then make their way to the shoreline, through the finishing arch and into the recovery zone where fruit and cold drinks are available.


A full breakfast is served immediately after the swim for those who have purchased breakfast vouchers.

This year, a special Kids Brekky Bag is also available for the young ones (containing a banana, cereal box and juice box).


Throughout the course of the event, there will be activities available for the younger kids – including music, face painting and a bouncy castle. These activities will take place at the Woodman Point Reserve and also on the beach during the swim.


After a short break in proceedings, prizes will be awarded and various other presentations made by officials in the Presentations Area of the Woodman Point Reserve.


We thank DPaW for allowing us to use the Woodman Point Reserve for the event and remind all participants that there are NO PETS ALLOWED either on the reserve or the beach.


To comply with MSWA insurance rules, the minimum age for a swimmer on the day of the race is 10 years old and there is no upper age limit. All swimmers, including late entries on the day, are eligible for category prizes. With two separate races conducted and all prize-winners announced during Presentations, age group prizes in both races are determined using 10 year age groups. With the help of our sponsors, the following category and age group prizes (with a total prize pool value of over $5,000) will be awarded:

1500m Event

  • 1st Male & Female – $300 Cash, Souvenir Prize Towel, Medal & $50 Vorgee Voucher
  • 2nd Male & Female – $200 Cash, Souvenir Prize Towel, Medal & $40 Cockburn Gateway Voucher
  • 3rd Male & Female – $100 Cash, Souvenir Prize Towel, Medal & $30 Cockburn Gateway Voucher
  • 1st Male & Female Wetsuit – $150 Cash, Souvenir Prize Towel, Medal & $50 Cockburn Gateway Voucher
  • 1st Male & Female in Each Age Group* – Souvenir Prize Towel, Medal & $25 Vorgee Voucher

*Age groups for race day prizes are 10-14, 15 – 24, 25 – 34, 35 – 44, 45 – 54, 55 – 64, 65 – 74, 75 and over , with all age groups determined using a swimmer’s age on the day of the race and gaining no other trophy (GNOT) rules also apply.

The 1,500m swim distance is our main event and it also forms part of the 2015/16 Livelighter Masters Open Water Swim Series. This means any Masters-affiliated swimmer will be awarded points as part of this series using MSWA’s standard 5 year age group rules after the event by MSWA. These 5 year age group results and MSWA points are NOT part of the event results announced on the day.

MSWA will publish these results and any queries about them should be directed to MSWA.

750m Event

  • 1st Male & Female – $150 Cash, Souvenir Prize Towel, Medal & $50 Vorgee Voucher
  • 2nd Male & Female – $100 Cash, Souvenir Prize Towel, Medal & 50 Cockburn Gateway Voucher
  • 1st Male & Female Westsuit – $100 cash, Souvenir Prize Towel, Medal & 50 Cockburn Gateway Voucher
  • 1st Male & Female in Each Age Group* – Souvenir Prize Towel, Medal & $25 Vorgee Voucher

*Age groups for race day prizes are 10-14, 15 – 24, 25 – 34, 35 – 44, 45 – 54, 55 – 64, 65 – 74, 75 and over , with all age groups determined using a swimmer’s age on the day of the race and gaining no other trophy (GNOT) rules also apply.

The 750m event is held to encourage participation by social swimmers, families and competitive swimmers of any age and ability. However, it does also form part of the 2015/16 LivelighterMasters Open Water Swim Series so MSWA points are also awarded in the 750m swim.


Other awards will be presented to:

• Youngest Swimmer

• Oldest Swimmer

• Closest to Nominated Time in 1500m swim

• Closest to Nominated Time in 750m swim

A selection of Spot Prizes are also awarded with the support of our sponsors and are allocated at random during the online registration  process. The Spot Prizes are generally made available to those lucky swimmers when confirming their registration on the day of the event.


This year, thanks to one of our new Gold Sponsors, The Holidayplanet Group, one lucky swimmer who registers online will be the winner of a massive $1,500 Holiday Voucher.

Holidayplanet has kindly donated this $1,500 voucher which can be used towards any interstate or overseas holiday (flights & hotel or a cruise) booked through a Holidayplanet consultant.

The voucher is just like “cash” and will be used to reduce your total holiday booking value by $1,500.

So, register to swim online now – you gotta be in it to win it…

A small number of other Major Spot Prizes may also be announced during the Presentations after the swim.

All prizes are subject to change at the discretion of the event Sub-Committee.

The Chia Co supporting Jetty to Jetty Coogee Ocean Swim


Eat chia and run! Many athletes eat chia to improve their endurance, aid mobility and help with muscle repair. Chia seeds swell up when soaked in water and form a gel-like substance. This slows the conversion of carbohydrates into sugar, keeping your body fuelled for longer periods of time.

Australian grown wholegrain oats and sun ripened chia are blended with pure dried coconut milk and dried coconut flakes to give our ‘just add hot water’ Oats+Chia delicious creaminess that is dairy free.
