Ocean Swim Series

The 2016/17 SLSWA Ocean Swim Series provides both Surf Life Saving members and the general public the chance to compete in mass participation long distance open water swimming events. The events within the Ocean Swim Series are run and administered by the local surf lifesaving clubs associated to each event. Ie. Cottesloe SLSC for the Cottesloe Classic Mile, etc. This helps to raise funds and awareness for these clubs within their local communities.

For the second year, in conjunction with North Cottesloe SLSC, SLSWA will host the SunSmart Coastal Relay at North Cottesloe Beach on Saturday 21 January 2017. The event will take the format of a swim relay with 4 x 1.25km laps with a beach transition. The relay can be completed as a solo, duo, team of 4 as well as a corporate team from which all entry fees go directly to the BeachSAFE Appeal. We have added a Junior Coastal Relay for 2017 and this event involves 4 team members aged 10-13 years of age who will complete a 250m lap each with a beach transition. Prizes are available for all divisions. Entries are now open via this link.
