This year the Cottesloe to Swanbourne Ocean Classic Swim Thru
will be held on Saturday 31st January 2015.
Please note the date for the Swanny Swim Thru in the
HBF Open Water Swims 2014/15 Calendar pdf version is incorrect.
(The Masters Swimming WA website has been updated to show the correct date.)
Unfortunately there was a clash with a triathlon at Cottesloe Beach on the 7th February which was our preferred date. So we have changed the date to a week earlier on Saturday 31st January 2015.
Regular swimmwers please note the change of date.
