Swimmers tackle Busselton Jetty Swim

On Sunday 12 February, the Bunbury Cathedral Grammar Swim team took on the challenge to compete in the annual Sunsmart Busselton Jetty Swim, a 3.6km swim around the iconic Busselton Jetty.

This year’s event was particularly challenging, with the weather providing strong currents and rough conditions.

Students competed as individuals, or in teams of two or four. The Jetty Swim is part of training for those who are competing in the Rottnest Channel Swim later this month.

Congratulations to all who competed in what was a very cold and windy race. The following students placed in their age groups:

  • Jye Jensen- 4th male overall; 1st in 15-19 age group
  • Tahilia Jensen- 2nd female overall; 1st in 15-19 age group
  • Samuel Ellis- 3rd male in under 15 age group
  • Swimming Sensations- 2nd team of four to finish.

Full race results can be found on the Busselton Jetty Swim website.
