The Rottnest Channel swim takes between six and seven hours to complete, so a lot of training and planning is required. Each swimmer or duo needs a boat & crew and a paddler to accompany them. It's also a no wetsuit swim, so it's lucky that the boys think they look so good in Speedos!
In recent times, both Andrew and Chris (AV and Swifty) have had close friends and male business colleagues affected by and in a few cases die from men's health issues (specifically bowel and prostate cancer).
So they chose to support three organisations through their swim; Bowel Cancer Australia, Prostate Cancer Foundation and Young Care, and raising an amazing $20,000 for BCA through their efforts!
Thanks AV and Swifty :)
