The great crossing.

There's 19.7 km of open water between Cottesloe Beach and Rottnest Island. And this is the distance swum each year by hundreds of professional and amateur swimmers at the famous Rottnest Channel Swim.

The fight for the title is played out between the top swimmers, however, for most the main challenge is to complete this very difficult swim. And this crossing is also the opportunity for a wider popular celebration.
