The Hotel Rottnest Port to Pub Swim is a new open water swimming event in Perth, Western Australia, designed to cater for the increased demand for long distance swimming and the interest from local, interstate and international swimmers to cross the iconic Rottnest Channel.
The swim comprises two races over two distances from Leighton Beach to Rottnest Island.
The 20km swim is open to solos, duos, and teams of four and six. It begins at Leighton Beach outside Fremantle Surf Lifesaving Club and finishes at the Hotel Rottnest.
The 25km ultra-marathon swim is open to qualified solo swimmers. It is the longest open water swim on offer in Australia and, and one of the longest in the Southern Hemisphere.
Our aim in future years is to attract world-class, elite swimmers to compete in the Port to Pub as part of the world calendar for marathon swimming.
There will be water closures to facilitate a safe and enjoyable event for all. Please refer to the map for closures or for coordinates of water closures visit www.rottnestisland.com/boatingnews
