Port to Pub News

Doing it for Coastcare and R U OK?

If you’re looking to raise money and put your swim to a good cause, please consider Coastcare or R U OK? – both proudly supported by Port to Pub in 2017.

Funds raised for Coastcare will go towards coastal and environmental work in coastal areas in the vicinity of Port to Pub.

R U OK? works tirelessly on suicide prevention, encouraging people to start important conversations by asking, “are you ok?”

Check the fundraising page on the Port to Pub website for details about how you can get involved!

Introducing Our 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 after party for swimmers and crew.

Merchandise retailer KC Sports joins us in 2017 as a premium sponsor, and has helped Port to Pub put together a great line up of merchandise (order it when you register!).

2016 - what a year it was! 

We could not have been happier with the inaugural Hotel Rottnest Port to Pub swim. The weather on the day improved and turned into perfect swimming conditions, allowing for some very fast times to be recorded.

The whole atmosphere of the day was happy and relaxed, and we hope it was thoroughly enjoyable for all involved.

Team Profile - Legs Eleven

Team Legs Eleven is likely to be one of the more remarkable teams in the Hotel Rottnest Port to Pub swim this year.

The instigator and main driver of the six-man team is Garry Lymn. Garry recently had to have his left leg amputated above the knee and, to prove he's kept his good sense of humour, decided to name his team ‘Legs Eleven’. A keen swimmer for over four decades, Garry was back in the pool training just two months after surgery and is determined to successfully lead his team across the Channel to Rottnest Island.
