Skippers Briefing

Skippers have the option of attending either the Main Event Briefing or the Skippers Briefing on 11th March. The Skippers Briefing is specific to skippers and is an opportunity to ask questions related to being a Port to Pub skipper. It is also a chance to treat our skippers as we appreciate all that they do for our Port to Pub swimmers.

The Skippers Briefing is located at Blue HQ Fremantle. Skippers are treated to a beautiful view, Gage Roads beer or Little Things Gin seltzer, and a chance to chat with other skippers.

We request that skippers RSVP to [email protected] for the Skippers Briefing.
