SWIM SAFETY

During the Portsea Swim Classic, qualified surf life savers will monitor swimmers safety from the water. Please do not hesitate to call for assistance if required by raising your arm in the air.

Medical assistance is readily available on the beach.

Consider wearing a wetsuit for extra warmth.

To maximise your safety during the race, you will be placed in a colour-coded swim group according to your anticipated swim time. It is imperative that all entrants swim in their nominated cap colour-coded group.

Note: Some tidal movement may be experienced in the area of the swim. However, the timing of the swim has been set to maximise your safety.
