Special Guest Coach David "Lockey" Locke is a 5 time Australian Lifesaver of the Year. He has been an Australian Lifesaving Team Representative and is also a current over 40s World Record Holder. Even more impressively, Lockey has been a member of THREE overall winning teams in the Rottnest Channel Swim in 2011, 2013 & 2014, the last of which was in a time of 3hrs47mins, the fastest crossing in 10 years. In 2005 Lockey's duo finished second and his 2012 solo swim bagged him a 4th placing in a time of 4hrs36mins meaning he was in the pub before most people were even half way!! As the holder of multiple World and Australian Surf Titles, Lockey has spent a great deal of time in the ocean and knows how to tackle tough and challenging conditions. With over 15 years of Surf, Open Water and Pool Coaching under his belt he also knows how to impart his years of accumulated knowledge in a friendly and supportive manner.

Elena Nesci

eSWIM Coach Elena Nesci's Rottnest Channel Swim history stretches back to her first team swim in 2000. Since then she has tackled further team crossings, a couple of duo crossings and a solo in 2005 where she was the 20th female in a time of 6hrs20mins. In 2012 she was part of the overall women's winning team in a time of 5hrs33mins. She has been an age group winner in several Open Water Races in the annual summer calendar and is the current holder of State and National relay records for Masters Swimming. She has trained countless successful Rottnest Channel swimmers of all standards over her 13 years as a coach and like all her eSWIM coaching programs, her approach to Open Water Swim training is about providing a supportive environment for swimmers to prepare physically and mentally for their own personal challenge. Listening to the individual needs of each client is paramount to her coaching ethos and providing advice on appropriate training schedules is essential to ensuring the health and wellbeing of all eSWIM clients.
