About Rottnest Channel Swim Association

The HBF Rottnest Channel Swim is a 19.7km swim from Cottesloe Beach to Thomson Bay, Rottnest Island in Western Australia. Participants can compete in teams of two or four, or for the extremely dedicated, tackle the crossing solo.

The event has grown in popularity to become the world’s largest open water swimming event and is now a much-loved West Australian icon, capturing the imagination of the public and ocean swimmers alike. Other open water swims are longer, but travel from bay to bay - this event is unique in that it travels from one location to another across a big, open ocean!

The HBF Rottnest Channel Swim is not reserved for the swimming elite, but provides an opportunity for anyone who shares the common goal of striving for the best to compete in an environment where sporting greats rub shoulders with the weekend warrior.

The RCSA look forward to holding the 23rd annual HBF Rottnest Channel Swim on Saturday, 23 February 2013 and will continue to prepare for the event with a paramount importance on safety. We look forward to seeing you all on the beach at Cottesloe come February!
