PorterEng Paddlers cross the channel

PorterEng Paddlers 2017

Congratulations to the PorterEng Paddlers who successfully completed the 2017 Rottnest Channel Swim.  Stuart, Mike, Alysse and Shane started in the second last wave and finished just before 3:30pm to make the 19.7km crossing in 8 hours and 6 seconds.  They battled the heat, sea sickness and a strong current but swam to Rottnest Island safely.

A big thanks to the support crew, our skipper Jason who kept everyone safe and the paddlers Jamie and Ian.

Once again, the Rottnest Channel Swim Association (RCSA) held a fantastic event and we extend congratulations to all of the other teams, duos and soloists.
