Port to Pub - another Rottnest swim?
So apparently there's now a second Rottnest Channel event, scheduled about a month after the more famous one (March 25 this year).
Port to Pub Swim - http://porttopub.com.au
The course is ever-so-slightly different, starting at Leighton Beach, a bit south of Cottesloe where the other one starts. 19.7km - same stated distance as the other one. With an added 25km option that starts with a loop parallel to the beach.
Last year's results: http://bluechipresults.com.au/results.aspx?CId=11&RId=829
What's the story behind this? Is the other event bursting at the seams?
