Channel 7 Brighton Jetty Classic

The Channel 7 Brighton Jetty Classic is South Australia’s largest open water swim and street festival. Held on the first Sunday in February annually since 2006. It attracts a field in excess of 1,000 entries for the 1,500m and 400m swims and now includes a 100m family swim, so everyone can be involved.



More than just a swim, it is an action packed day of entertainment on and off the beach. The 7BJC includes a surf boat carnival, street festival, food trucks, stage events, live music and guest appearances from Channel 7 personalities.
