After two years of attracting a broad range of high profile to recreational swimmers, the Hotel Rottnest Port to Pub organisers and participants are ‘raising a challenge’ for everyday Western Australians to start training to swim from Perth mainland to Rottnest Island on Saturday 17 March 2018.
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 finish line atmosphere to make it one of the best days of your year!
Three more sleeps! You will be so excited/nervous, and getting up so early, that you probably won’t sleep much Friday night - so you will be taking part in the Port to Pub before you know it!
Make sure you are prepared for any weather and ocean conditions, and for a longer-than-expected swim. Then, on the day, when it’s beautiful weather, calm conditions, and you get there in sub 5 hours, you will have even more reason to celebrate at the Hotel Rottnest.
Competitors and support crews in the 2017 Port to Pub swim come together at the all-important 1500 metre mark of the race. This year the TAMS Tugboat will once again provide a highly visible waypoint, in TAMS’ second year of sponsoring the swim.
