The Cosy Gropers swim group are a motley crew of open water swimmers, who swim out of "Cosy Corner", Torquay Front Beach in Victoria.
We enter the water at a respectable 8 am on every Saturday all year around. Various participants also swim on Tuesdays, Thursdays & Sundays as well.
We have 2 yellow turning bouys to navigate towards plus various land features. All types of abilities are welcome to join in & we always regroup after each leg of our swim.
Mini swims are called throughout the morning as we navigate from point to point. Distances are typically from as short as 300 meters to as long as 1.2 kilometres, before resting, regrouping & going again.
Conditions depending, we generally are leaving the water between 50 minutes & 75 minutes after starting - coffee time!
