Mandurah Australia Day Swim
WOW Swim Series
Doddi's Beach Swims
Club members meet at Doddi’s Beach on Halls Head Parade for a swim of whatever distance each swimmer prefers.
We swim all through the year on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday mornings. Currently, we hit the water at 8:00 am.
The popularity of this swim (largely due to the convenience of having a Dome coffee shop across the road) often sees around 25 swimmers staying for a coffee and chat.
For safety reasons, these are supervised swims with a Spotter on the beach keeping watch on swimmers between 8:00am and 9:00am. All swimmers must wear brightly coloured swim caps for visibility (red and yellow are easiest to spot). Swimmers should register the name and anticipated swim distance before entering the water and swim with a buddy.
On Saturday 26 January 2019, the Mandurah Australia Day Swim will be held at Doddi's Beach Halls Head. This swim is Round 4 of the new WOW Swim Series.
In 2018, more than 220 swimmers with a wide range of abilities competed in their choice of a 1km, 2km or 4km swim. Swims are conducted, in mostly waist deep water, around a course set in the boating exclusion zone at Doddi's Beach.
In 2019, we have added the Alcoa 250m Try It Swim to give everyone in the community aged 8 years and up an opportunity to try open water swimming.
