Port to Pub Training Guide – 10 Week Countdown! with Ceinwen Roberts

If you haven’t started training yet for the Port to Pub Swim, don’t worry we are here to help. You have 10 weeks to go! Here is your Hotel Rottnest Port to Pub Training Guide to help keep you motivated and to give you some guidance in the lead up to the swim!


Swimmer Nutrition Tips with David Bryant, Catalyst Dietitian

Contrary to popular belief, quality training is not about who can do the most amount of training, on the least amount of fuel.

It's not about carbohydrates, protein or fat being superior to one another, it's about just eating food, real food.

It's also about manipulating your intake each day dependent on your training load and intensity of the session.

Medals for the 2018 Port to Pub, thanks to Blackmores Mentors

All successful swimmers across the finish line will receive a medal along with their towel and cap this year. The medal will be a reminder of your fantastic achievement making it across the Rottnest Channel from Leighton Beach to the Hotel Rottnest either as a solo swimmer or as a team member.

TAMS team swimming for Saba

We’re really pleased to have the TAMS Group back on board in 2018. Once again, the TAMS Tugboat will provide a highly visible waypoint at the 1500m mark of the race (swimmers must not proceed past this point until they’ve met up with their paddler and support boat).



... 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.


Fundraising Spotlight

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?
