Mt Claremont Mum Can’t Wait For Port To Pub Swim

THE third annual Port to Pub swim from North Fremantle to Rottnest Island is attractive to Mt Claremont mum of two Corinne Zadon (36).

“The great thing about the Port to Pub is I know lots of the people doing it, and it’s easy to catch up with each other,” Ms Zadon said at the launch of the event at Fremantle Surf Lifesaving Club, North Fremantle this morning.

Ms Zadon did her first solo crossing in 2017 and will swim the 2018 event in a team of four with her mother, father and sister.

Started in 2016 to give swimmers an alternative to established swims to the island, Port to Pub organisers said they wanted many “everyday” people among the potential 1200 entrants tackling the 19.7km course, protected by shadowing kayak, support and water safety boats.

“Swimmers can enter as a solo, duo or team of four or six to swim from Leighton Beach to Rottnest Island, and we also have Australia’s longest open water swimming route of 25km for more experienced swimmers,” organiser Ceinwen Roberts said.

This year, that category attracted Olympian Jarrod Poort, who with 900 others followed the original open water crossing from North Fremantle to Rottnest Island successfully conducted more than 60 years ago

However, Ms Roberts said the Port to Pub was not just for top athletes and could be taken on by everyone, including those seeking a “bucket-list challenge”.

Registrations for the March 17, 2018 Port to Pub are at from Monday.
