There will be competition for the Rottnest Island swim next year when on March 19 the first PORT TO PUB SWIM will be held. Swimmers will leave from Leighton Beach near Bib&Tuckers and arrive at Thompson Bay near the hotel.
Up to 1,200 swimmers can take part in the community race with entry fees of $ 195 per person for teams of four to six people.
There will be two options, a 20km and a 25km swim, so get ready and start training.

I think it is amazingly bad marketing that I had to find out by chance at the Roundhouse today that the 2015 AUSTRALIAN OPEN AND AGE OPEN WATER CHAMPIONSHIPS will being held at Fremantle’s Bathers Beach this weekend.
I have not read or heard anything about it and only because some competitors visited the Roundhouse today while I was on duty, did I find out about this big national sporting event.
Why is this not advertised by the organisors and City of Fremantle better so the Freo community can support the event and watch the 5 and 10 kilometre races?
Races start at 8 and 11 am and 2 and 2.15 pm on Saturday and on Sunday at 8, 9.30, 11, and 11.15. You can also watch some swimmers giving the Indian Ocean a try tomorrow.
