The check-in area will be located on the beach at Hearson’s Cove to the right as you enter the beach area.

You must bring your e-ticket with your race number with you to check-in and proceed directly to the tent marked with your swim distance.

Your entry pack includes a timing chip, race tattoo and race coloured cap depending on your chosen distance.  It is compulsory to wear these at all times during the swim for identification purposes.  Note: OWS silicon caps can replace the cap in your pack as long as the colour matches the distance you have entered.

Note: If you have purchased an OWS silicon cap from the merchandise store, you can collect this from the Vorgee Merchandise Tent on the beach and use this for your swim, provided it is the same colour as the distance you are swimming.  Unused latex caps can be returned to check-in or the Vorgee Merchandise Tent for repacking and to do your part to help us to reduce waste this summer.


Late Registration or Changes

You can register online, or at the help desk (found at the front of the check-in area) on the day of the event right up until 30 minutes before the first event, when late registrations and distance changes close.

Note: You can change your registered distance by emailing ows@wa.swimming.org.au.  It is recommended if you wish to change your distance to do so as early as possible to avoid queues.

You will be issued a new e-ticket and race number when you change your distance and will not be able to use the old one.



Please allow plenty of time to park and check-in as cut off times are strict.  Remember to follow all road signs and parking rules.
