Max from Geographe is the President and founding member of the Busselton Jetty Swim and has been involved with the concept of the event and the continued evolvement since 1996. Max’s love of keeping fit (ex Ironman), Mountain Biking, swimming, paddling, running, cycling, fishing, camping, travelling was the genesis of the event. Max identified there was a need for an open water swim in the region and Busselton didn’t have major community sporting events at the time and the Jetty has always been Busselton’s identity symbol.
As a Director of Higgins Building Contractors, he has been fortunate to have had the flexibility to dedicate the last 25 years to the event. Max has swum the Jetty Swim numerous times and has lost count!
Max will be celebrating the 25th Anniversary in 2020 and will also be taking a step back after the event to hopefully spend more time with his hobbies, business, swimming the event and spending time with his new grandchild.
