More than 1000 swimmers are expected to descend on Sorrento Beach as the WA Open Water Swim Series returns to its shores on Australia Day.

The event is historically the most popular round of the series, with competitors contesting distances of 150m, 500m, 1.25km, 2.5km, 5km and 10km.

It is the final opportunity for solo swimmers to qualify for the Rottnest Channel Swim by completing the 10km leg.

In a first this year, the event is being promoted as part of Swimming Australia’s Australia Swims campaign.

The sporting body is looking to “unite the entire Australian community through something we all love” between January 20 and 28.

“We want to inspire Australians to swim, reconnect with their love of swimming,” Swimming Australia president John Bertrand said.

Online registrations close at 10pm tomorrow, but registrations are available on the day.
