2020 Portsea Swim Classic

The Portsea Swim Classic is limited to 2000 competitors in order to ensure a hassle free event & competitor safety. It is strongly advised that competitors enter online early so as to avoid disappointment at missing out on Australia's premier open water swim in the pristine waters of Point Nepean National Park, Portsea. Subject to numbers & availability there may be extremely limited on day entries from 8:00 am.

Don't miss one of the most beautiful open water swims in Australia (as voted by us).

** PLEASE NOTE ** The Portsea Swim Classic Gold will return in 2020. In addition to the classic 1.5 km course we will again be offering the "Portsea Swim Classic Gold" being a 2.5 km swim classic option starting to the east of the Portsea Hotel with a shot gun start and competitor numbers strictly limited to 300 entrants only - first in best dressed and online entries only. This event sold out very quickly in 2017, 2018 & 2019 so don't delay.

Race Information

Commencing from Fisherman’s beach (accessible via the Cutting car park 200m west of Portsea Pier along Point Nepean Road), swimmers will head west around Police Point and along the coast to Jarman Oval at the historic Quarantine Station in the Point Nepean National Park. The Swim has been carefully timed to ensure it will be aided by the outgoing tide.
The swim distance is approximately 1,500m. Swimmers will have the benefit of the outgoing tide the whole way, with no hard slog back into the tide.


Pre Race registration will be held at the finish line on Jarman Oval inside Point Nepean National Park, with a shuttle bus service to ferry swimmers to the start line.  
Each competitor will receive a souvenir 100% premium cotton BLAZER t-shirt, swim cap and products from our sponsors including Splitrock, Carman's, Bulla and the Australian Banana Industry.
