OVERVIEW OF RACE CATEGORIES
The Junior Swim Classic is a great entry point for those aged up to 12 to be part of the iconic Portsea Swim Classic Day. Competitors will swim 500m (swimming with the tide) in the pristine waters of the Quarantine Station finishing at the Swim Classic finish line. The field size is strictly limited to 120 competitors and all participants will receive their own “Portsea Junior Swim Classic” t-shirt and swimming cap (to be worn during the event). Registration link is below, and packs can be collected on the day. The entry fee is $35 but the bragging rights are priceless!
This iconic race is swum at the spectacular, “Quarantine” course over 1500m. The heart and soul of this great day and one that has become a favourite among open water swimmers. Normally, this event is only swum in age group and gender categories but this year we add the new Mixed Class that allows groups of two or more of any age or gender to swim together. To swim in this class you must, prior to the end of December, ensure you have nominated a group name and all participants are registered in this group.
Our single wave event for everyone of all ages and gender that like the challenge of a large field and that extra distance of 2500m. Yes, there is a great deal of jostling with lots of feet and hands but wow the adrenalin rush is amazing. This is the race where you get to enjoy that extra time in the water to soak up the wonders you get to see in the pristine water of Port Phillip Bay and to hopefully be visited by our local dolphins.
Portsea Swim Classic Tribe is a female-only team swim event.
This team consists of three swimmers who swim together over the 500m course. A great event for both friends or family to swim together and for their times to be combined to determine their place on the day. This event has seen families of three generations swimming together, enjoying both the wonderful environment of the pristine waters of ‘Quarantine’, but also a very special moment. Come down and join the movement and a wonderful experience with all of us.
