2017 Coogee Jetty to Jetty Swim XX1

The 2017 Coogee Jetty to Jetty Swim was held on a cloudy and cool 12 March morning. The assembled Mandurah Mannas team numbered 28 crack(ed?) swimmers, most of which are in the photos above. (It was necessary to take two photos, not because of the large numbers, it is just the group on right wouldn't come out of the Bouncy Castle in the background when it was time for the team photo.)

It is pleasing to see the popularity of open water swimming among Mandurah members, as a team of 28 follows on from the 33 in our Busselton Jetty Swim team. I am not sure if our Club had the largest team of the Masters Clubs present, but we must have been close.

PS: A big thanks to Alan, Trevor, John and Jane who volunteered to walk 1.5 km to the start and then 1.5 km back carrying everyone's kit. Well done, but next year you might find swimming easier!
