We’re so pleased to welcome back Austral Fisheries as one of our major event sponsors 2019. 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. Austral supports us, and we love that Austral also loves the ocean, and takes good care of it too.

Explanation: One of the biggest risks in swimming over long distances is hypothermia. Before your Port to Pub swim, it is crucial you know what it is, signs and symptoms, and how to treat it.
Hypothermia is a significant risk for solo swimmers who are in the water for a very long time, but similarly for teams of four and six, whose members are spending a lot of time on the boat and exposed to the wind.
