First held in 1987, the Portsea Swim Classic is now one of Victoria’s largest and most iconic swims.
Portsea is a popular resort town located approximately 90km from the Melbourne CBD and is home to the pristine Point Nepean National Park.
In addition to the classic 1.5 km Portsea Swim Classic, there is also a 2.5km Portsea Swim Classic Gold long course.
The 1500m “point-to-point” course starts close to the iconic Portsea Pier and takes you through the pristine waters of Weeroona Bay before heading west around Police Point, along the stunning foreshore of Point Nepean and finishing at Jarman Oval (better known as the “Polo Ground”) at the historic Quarantine Station in Point Nepean National Park
The 2.5 km long course option starts to the east of the Portsea Hotel with a shot gun start and competitor numbers are strictly limited to 300 entrants only.
