Here's a great little event for you to get you over that post-Christmas hiatus...and then another (bigger) one for you to focus on!

Dear Swimmers

It'll soon be Christmas of course and leading into some of the bigger races towards the latter half of the open water season is the perennial and much-loved Swim Thru Perth on Sunday 17th January. There's a 1.6k and 4k option and with any luck entry into this event will see you avoiding any nasty stingers or other marine life!

Here's the link:

...and then if that gets your swimming taste buds going and if you missed out on Rotto this year, why not look at this:

The Hotel Rottnest Port To Pub inaugural event will be held on 19 March 2016. Registrations are open through the website

The Port to Pub will comprise two swimming events. A 20km race from Leighton Beach to Rottnest Island open to solo, duo teams, and teams of 4 or 6 swimmers. Also, an ultra-marathon 25km solo swim, which will be the longest open water swim available in Australia.

Both swims will start at Leighton Beach in front of the Fremantle Surf Life Saving Club and finish at the Hotel Rottnest. The course for the 25km event includes a 5km swim along the Leighton Beach coastline before participants continue to Rottnest Island.

They are allowing wetsuits for those who think they may be prone to hyperthermia. Wetsuits swimmers will not be eligible for prizes and there swim will not ratified as an official swim, but will still get a time and an opportunity to give it a go!

Cheers and have a great week!

P.S don't forget to RSVP through the app if you're popping along to the Christmas Party this week - Friday 11th December, 5-10pm.
