LET'S HEAR IT FOR OUR SPONSORS: HOTEL ROTTNEST
THANK YOU HOTEL ROTTNEST
... and as you take your final stroke towards the finish line, could you really ever imagine a better sight than the amazing Hotel Rottnest?
We are so proud to be associated with this iconic and much loved venue and we could’t be more grateful for the support it has given to the Port to Pub as naming sponsor.
Put your swim to a good cause and help us raise some much-needed funds for Coastcare or R U OK? – both proudly supported by Port to Pub in 2018.
You can give a donation to one of these groups in your registration form, or use your swim to start fundraising today!
Nutritional Advice with David Bryant
NURITION ADVICE with David Bryant, Sports Dietitian, Catalyst Dietitian
Last year, my first nutrition tip was that 'you cannot out train a bad diet', so who remembers the alarming statistic I mentioned that just 4% of Australia achieve the recommended 2 serves of fruit and 5 serves of vegetables each day?

OUR CHRISTMAS PRESENT TO YOU!
Port to Pub’s Ceinwen Roberts has set you a 5 week program to challenge you in the lead up to Christmas. We’ll be helping you to keep your training program on track from now until March.

Empower someone to WIN
IS THERE SOMEONE YOU WANT TO EMPOWER TO SWIM?
We all know how amazing it feels to cross the finish line at Rottnest Island after completing the Hotel Rottnest Port to Pub. Being greeted by the cheers of our incredible and supportive community is just the start.
We know that many of you would not have thought it possible until you started training!
That’s why this year we’re encouraging you to ‘Raise The Challenge’ and empower someone you know to start training for the 2018 event. If they accept – you both go into the draw to WIN!
Registrations Open for a Swim for All!
After two years of attracting a broad range of high profile to recreational swimmers, the Hotel Rottnest Port to Pub organisers and participants are ‘raising a challenge’ for everyday Western Australians to start training to swim from Perth mainland to Rottnest Island on Saturday 17 March 2018.
2018 Port to Pub sponsors
We’ve been lucky to secure the support of some fantastic sponsors again.
We’re grateful for the ongoing support of our naming rights sponsor, Hotel Rottnest. The Port to Pub finishes right in front of the Hotel and the Hotel Rottnest team are busy planning the perfect finish line atmosphere to make it one of the best days of your year!
That’s Right: It’s All In The Mind! by Shelley Taylor-Smith
Here we are… standing on Leighton Beach looking out to Rotto… it’s your Port to Pub Day!
You have completed all the training and now it is time for your body to back you and race.
Meet Our Sponsors: K&L Gates
We are delighted that global law firm, K&L Gates, is once again a presenting sponsor of the Hotel Rottnest Port to Pub swim.
IT’S ALMOST RACE DAY!
Three more sleeps! You will be so excited/nervous, and getting up so early, that you probably won’t sleep much Friday night - so you will be taking part in the Port to Pub before you know it!
Make sure you are prepared for any weather and ocean conditions, and for a longer-than-expected swim. Then, on the day, when it’s beautiful weather, calm conditions, and you get there in sub 5 hours, you will have even more reason to celebrate at the Hotel Rottnest.
