Leanne Ford

Leanne of Geographe was one of the four founding members of the event and has been actively involved as an Executive Committee and Committee member since 1996. Leanne first became involved in the event when supporting her sporting husband and friends and has maintained an integral role as the event grew. Leanne recalls the first year when she hand lettered the swimmers finisher’s certificates.

Leanne and husband Richard enjoy Cycle touring, travelling, camping and reading. With the hectic roles Leanne has maintained for the event day over the years she has only swum once – first leg in a 4 person team in 2018!

Leanne is an Office Administrator in her career however her role within the Jetty Swim over the years has varied from looking after registration on swim weekend and volunteers to assisting with entries, documentation, risk management any fine details of the weekend! During the planning of the 2020 Leanne will be transitioning to retirement so will take on an advisory role for the 25th swim.
