Portsea Swim Classic 2015

  • 1196.jpg

2015 Portsea Swim Classic The Portsea Swim Classic will be held again on Saturday the 17th of January 2015. The Portsea Swim Classic is limited to 1,800 competitors in order to ensure a hassle free event & competitor safety. It is strongly advised that competitors enter online early so as to avoid disappointment at missing out on Australia's premier open water swim in the pristine waters of Point Nepean National Park, Portsea. Subject to numbers & availability there may be extremely limited on day entries from 8:00 am.

Commencing from Fisherman’s beach (accessible via the Cutting car park 200m west of Portsea Pier along Point Nepean Road), swimmers will head west around Police Point and along the coast to Jarman Oval ("Polo" Ground) at the historic Quarantine Station in the Point Nepean National Park. The Swim has been carefully timed to ensure it will be aided by the outgoing tide. The swim distance is approximately 1,500m. While this is slightly longer than the old rectangular course around Portsea Pier, swimmers will have the benefit of the outgoing tide the whole way, with no hard slog back into the tide. Don't miss out on one of the most beautiful open water swims in Australia.

Remember to contact MyCoastline Holiday Rentals for all your accommodation needs on the Mornington Peninsula. The Portsea Swim Classic is a proud supporter of the work of Australia for Dolphins (www.afd.org.au) some of which you may be fortunate enough to see as you participate in this amazing event in the pristine waters off Portsea!
