Swimmers Seminar

The RCSA holds a Swimmers’ Seminar each year which addresses common questions for first-time participants. While the session is aimed at first-time soloists, the evening is ideal for everyone who wants to make their first Rottnest Channel crossing (solos, duos, teams, and even parents of swimmers wishing to enter).

The session usually runs through the following:

  • What to expect on the event day
  • Training guidelines and taper tips
  • Handy tricks on what to include on the boat
  • How to find your support crew on the water
  • Rotto Swim health and safety
  • That finish line feeling and looking after yourself on dry land

The 2024 seminar was held on Wednesday, 27 September 2023, from 6pm in The Ellis Room, Bendat Basketball Centre.
