The Rottnest Channel Swim Association is excited to introduce the inaugural Cotto Swim on Saturday, 24 February 2018 at Cottesloe Beach in Western Australia.
Swum on the same day as the Rottnest Channel Swim, this new event will see swimmers take off from the Cottesloe Beach start enclosure, swimming 1.5km around the iconic STS Leeuwin II then returning back to Cottesloe Beach again, a 3km round trip! For those just starting out or returning to open water, a 1km novice option is also available.
The Cotto Swim provides everyone with the opportunity to get involved in the excitement and challenge of race morning. Starting directly after the last wave of the main event, Cotto is ideal for family or friends to get amongst the action before heading over to Rottnest to cheer on their swimmers.
Whether you're working your way up to the main event, missed out on an entry or just fancy a swim at the iconic Cottesloe Beach - Cotto is a swim for everyone!
