Western Suburbs Weekly - - Look Local -

SLABS of wa­ter­melon will greet about 1000 wa­ter sports men and women at the 32nd an­nual Cott to Swanny Ocean Clas­sic on Satur­day.

“We've or­gan­ised a whop­ping 100kg of wa­ter­melon be given to par­tic­i­pants at the fin­ish line,” Swan­bourneNed­lands Surf Life Sav­ing Club event or­gan­iser Nick Hud­son said.

Com­peti­tors in the swim­ming, Mal­ibu and SUP pad­dling and run­ning sec­tions start at Cottes­loe Beach.

They race on land and sea to the club’s pa­trol tower 2.km north at Swanbourne Beach.

Mr Hud­son said the club hoped to ex­pand on the pop­u­lar­ity of the knee pad­dle­board sec­tion in­tro­duced last year.

“The board race will see some of WA’s most com­pet­i­tive surf-life­savers square up against each other in this wa­ter event,” he said.

Com­peti­tors can be aged 12 to 75 in all sec­tions, and the races are part of Surf Life Sav­ing WA’s Ocean Swim se­ries.

Reg­is­tra­tions are at www.swan­ny­ocean­clas­sic.com un­til 7pm Fri­day.
