Due to updated tidal information which due to the 5-day lockdown we have only just received and the forecast weather conditions for Sunday please see updated wave times:

Wave 1 – This will now move to 11am  

Wave 2 – This will now move to 1pm

This decision to push the waves back 1 hr has been made with competitor safety as our first priority.

We apologize for any inconvenience this change may cause. As you can appreciate this was a hard decision to make. Please note wave allocation has been completed and you will be receiving your email detailing race information shortly.

Thank you for your support.

P2P Committee

  • Course marshals shall have authority to disqualify any competitors.
  • Course marshals/medical staff shall have the ultimate and final authority to remove a competitor from the race if the competitor is judged to be incapable of continuing the race without the risk of serious injury.

  • The start is on the beach after the briefing – wait until you are instructed to enter the water
  • Remember you are swimming with the tide, but you should allow between 40-90 minutes to complete the swim.
  • We recommend you swim close to Pt. King and Pt. Franklin, in order to avoid boating traffic.
  • We also recommend a straight line to Pt King and swimming to the left of the marker buoys positioned at PT King, half way along Shelly Beach and at Pt Franklin.
  • Water depth varies so watch for rocks and if necessary rest in the shallows at Shelly Beach.
  • Moored boats can and do hurt – keep your eye on the water in front.
  • Tide and wind meet at Pt. King and the water can be very turbulent – an inner course is preferable for a smooth ride.
  • Finish at Portsea is on the beach approx. 200m east of the pier – You MUST swim around the marker buoys before swimming towards the Finish Banner.
