We’re collecting any spare goggles you may have TOMORROW at the race briefing and the Port to Pub start line at Leighton Beach on behalf of 25km swimmer Troy Santen, who will deliver them to Warburton, ~1000km NE of Kalgoorlie, next month.
Swimmers and paddlers, you’ll love visiting the team from the Freo Fire Fund in the swimmer recovery are this year. They’ll have hot drinks and delicious cakes and biscuits waiting for you after your long swim across the Channel.
Australian marine services company TAMS Group is once again sponsoring the Channel 7 Port to Pub with Hotel Rottnest. The TAMS team plays a crucial part in the event, providing the huge TAMS Tugboat that sits at the 1500m mark of the race (swimmers must not proceed past this point until they have met up with their paddler and support boat). Did you know that the TAMS crew also lays out all the buoys for along the Port to Pub 19.7km and 25km courses?
Once you’re across the finish line and walk up on onto the beautiful white beaches of Thomson Bay, you’ll be looking up at Hotel Rottnest, which welcomes you, your team and support crew to come and celebrate your swim!
We are proud to be associated with this iconic, much loved venue and couldn't be more grateful for the support Hotel Rottnest has given us since the event began.
Austral Fisheries: A Home-Grown Leader in Sustainable Seafood
We’re thrilled to welcome back Austral Fisheries as one of our major event sponsors in 2020.
Austral is one of Australia’s largest integrated commercial fishing companies with interests in both deep-sea fishing and at-sea prawning. Austral has been a sponsor since Port to Pub began and has the important role of presenting sponsor for the 25km ultra-marathon solo crossing. The 25km event is the longest open water swim in the Southern Hemisphere. Austral supports us, and we love that Austral also loves the ocean, and takes good care of it too.
We have been profiling the work our 2020 charity partner, the Fremantle Foundation is doing in the WA community, supporting wide range of programs to help groups in need.
