Rottnest Channel Swim v Port to Pub: Diverging on Allowed Equipment
In the last 24h, I've seen 1 communication each; 1st from Port to Pub on instagram (link below) and 2nd an email update from RCS. The 1st from PTP states that wetsuits are allowed in any category except the 25km (which means the 19.7km event is open to wetsuits!). The 2nd communication from RCS was a note clarifying that watches (and earphones) are not permitted (was always the case, but apparently there was some confusion over the matter).
What a shame from PTP! Guess they are trying to grab market share from the triathletes. Congratulations to RCS for not pandering to the same!
