Rottnest Channel Swim – Coffs Harbour


This is our Thirteenth  Annual Charity Swim to support local patients and families affected by
cancer and attending the Mid North Coast Cancer Institute at Coffs Harbour.

After successfully swimming the equivalent distance of the English Channel Swim for the first 3 years, this year will be our 10th year to acknowledge the Rottnest Channel Swim (off Perth WA).

The people of the Coffs Coast will have the opportunity to participate in a continuous
relay of 394 laps of the main Olympic Pool covering a distance of 19.7 kilometres
which is equivalent to swimming the Rottnest Channel Swim!

We need your help!
Community Groups, Business Houses, Schools, Sporting Groups and individuals are welcome to participate in this community-based event to be held in March.

How will it work?

Each group will be allocated a 30-minute time slot commencing from 9am. We will have a “serious lane and a “fun/community” lane. Your group of 4 swimmers (can be more in the “fun lane”) donate $250.00 to CanDo for your 30-minute block. Swimmers can do more than 1 lap during the 30 minute block, remembering, it’s a continuous relay.

There will be team awards for the most laps swum in 30 minutes and an award to the
top school on the Coffs Coast. There will be novelty prizes
throughout the day awarded to swimmers, a BBQ and fun activities.

Bookings are essential! Contact us to reserve your slot now
