We are excited, refreshed and raring to go this year with Coogee Jetty to Jetty Swim 28.
“Number 28” will incorporate all of the traditional features of this iconic event, including a choice of three swim distances (250m, 750m & 1500m), beach walk, Daphne the Duck, family discounts, kidzone activities and a huge community breakfast.
Come along and help us celebrate the biggest and best Jetty to Jetty swim ever!
For this year’s Coogee Jetty to Jetty Swim 28, we thought it was time to let you all know what WE thought about this unique community event and what it means to us.
We all know this is a special event which offers a variety of swimming distances, an uplifting beach walk to the start line, kids activities, a terrific breakfast after your swim and pristine swimming conditions in the some of the most beautiful clear waters in WA – here at our very own Coogee Beach. But this event is more than all of that – it is also about people. People from all walks of life, drawn from far and wide, people of different ages, generations and swimming abilities and many travelling with groups of friends, work colleagues, club members and families. All of you coming together to enjoy each other’s company, share some fun and enjoy a healthy activity in a safe and enjoyable environment.
So how can we best describe this?
a place to feel good
We think it is exactly that – and hopefully you’ll think so too!

At the conclusion of the relevant Race Briefing, swimmers walk from the Woodman Point Jetty along the beach to their designated start line.
The 250m Community Try-It start line is only a short walk, the 750m Splash start line is at the half-way mark along Coogee Beach and the 1500m Classic start line is located at the northern end of the beach next to Coogee Beach Jetty.

The starting wave procedure is simple and will be explained fully at Race Briefing.

A simplified set of Race Rules has been developed in conjunction with the WOW Swims Committee.
View the WOW Swims 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 and are not eligible for race prizes).
All swimmers swim in the same direction towards Woodman Point Jetty and finish the race by swimming under an in-water finishing boom where a time is recorded.
Don’t forget you will all swim past Daphne as you approach the finish boom – so give her a wave and say hello!
Swimmers then make their way to the shoreline, through the finishing arch and into the recovery zone where fruit, water and samples of Everlast Isotonic drinks are available.
CITY OF COCKBURN COMMUNITY BREAKFAST
With the help of an amazing group of volunteers from “Friends of the Community”, a range of breakfast options will be available for you to enjoy after your swim
The City of Cockburn Community Breakfast area will serve a feast of delicious bacon & egg rolls, gluten-free and vegan options and a “cold serve” (yoghurt, juice box & fruit).
Participants should pre-purchase all of these breakfast options for themselves and any accompanying family and friends during the online entry process. There will only be a small number of breakfasts available for cash sales on the day – so PLEASE ORDER YOUR BREAKFAST ONLINE so as not to miss out. (This also helps us with catering numbers too!)
Freshly brewed cappuccino/coffees, cold drinks and snacks will also be available to purchase separately from the Woodman Point Kiosk which will be open throughout the morning of the event and is located on John Graham Reserve.
CITY OF COCKBURN KIDZONE
The City of Cockburn Kidzone will again be an integral part of this year’s event offering FREE activities for the kids throughout the morning.
