Congratulations to our newest Sharkbait members!

The sharkbait club is an award given to swimmers who have completed 10 swims in the GMHBA Lorne Pier to Pub swim.

We also recognise loyal competitors, who have completed 20 and 30 year swims.  Congratulations to all of these 2019 confirmed inductees.  As a reward, next year you have guaranteed entry to the swim (for the first two weeks).

Sharkbait medals will be presented after 3 pm at the main stage.  Please be there to be presented with your medal.


Everyone wants a photograph and to make this much easier we have added a second photo wall. This is located behind the 2XU stand beside the arm marking tent. Here you can make those special memories of the day. The photo wall is open to everyone.

Speedo Caps

On Pier to Pub day (Saturday 12th January 2019) you will be able to purchase a Speedo silicone swimming cap (see picture below). These will be available in black or white background from the information tent on the foreshore for $15. EFTPOS facilities will be available.

What a great way to show off to everyone in the pool or surf that you are a true legend of the ocean.

PLEASE NOTE: these caps are not to be worn during the event itself. You must still wear the Pier to Pub wave category cap supplied to you.


Following the event all Shark Bait members will be emailed a link to purchase the 2XU Shark Bait merchandise. There are polo shirts, short and long sleeve t’shirts, casual caps, and visors, for purchase. This year we have added a track jacket due to multiple requests.

The shirts and jackets will specify 10, 20, or 30 years, however the caps are generic with the Shark Bait logo only. We will have a few about on P2P day for you to have a look at. Prices for these are down from 2018 thanks to such a successful first round of orders!

2XU will coordinate all production of these, and will post these to you directly.

Any queries about the new merchandise are to be directed to the email address.
